Borislav, Drogobych, Sambor & Vicinity Research Group
Borislav, 49°17'/23°25'; Drogobych, 49°21'/23°30';
and Sambor, 49°31'/23°12' were variously part of Austria
(the eastern section of the province of Galicia) before WWI, then Poland
(between the two world wars), and now in western Ukraine.
The goals of the Borislav, Drogobych, Sambor & Vicinity
(BDSandV) Research Group are to:
- Acquire, and when necessary translate, material relating to the
Jewish residents of Borislav, Drogobych, Sambor & Vicinity (referred
to as "BDS&V") such as histories, yizkor books, memoirs, cemetery
listings, business directories, telephone directories, etc.,
for posting on a future web site.
- Create scanned images of acquired material in order to post them
on a future web site.
- Create databases of acquired material in order to post them on
appropriate JewishGen databases.
- Create a list of towns within our scope of interest.
Initially, we have set up a mailing list so that researchers can
easily exchange ideas.
Fundraising will be addressed at a later date, as we determine what
projects we need to sponsor.
We hope that many persons with ties to this area will join our group and
help provide information such as memorabilia, records, photos, for these
larger towns and smaller villages as well.
