The Jewish Taxpayers Project

Project Coordinator: Mark Jacobson

General information

Many lists of Jewish taxpayers from Galicia in the 1930s have survived. Among them, are Jewish taxpayer record sets from the Stanisławów area, held at the DAIFO archive in Ivano-Frankivsk, and another batch from the Tarnopol area, held at DATO in Ternopil.

In 2018-2019, this Project indexed taxpayer records from some 20 towns. Another five sets of records had been done earlier. In 2020, the project is completing the known Jewish taxpayer record sets from the 1930s from the Stanisławów and Tarnopol areas, with records from the following seven towns:

  • Olesko
  • Podkamień (Tarnopol province)
  • Sasów
  • Sokolówka
  • Uścieczko
  • Zbaraż
  • Złoczów

The basic indexes are made available—as with all Gesher Galicia projects—on the freely searchable All Galicia Database. In addition, all completed spreadsheets of indexes, along with images of the original records, are made accessible to Gesher Galicia members through the Members Portal on the website.

Gesher Galicia is a non-profit organization carrying out Jewish genealogical and historical research on Galicia, formerly a province of Austria-Hungary and today divided between southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The research work includes the indexing of archival vital records and census books, Holocaust-period records, Josephine and Franciscan cadastral surveys, lists of Jewish taxpayers, and records of Galician medical students and doctors - all added to our searchable online database. In addition, we reproduce regional and cadastral maps for our online Map Room. We conduct educational research and publish a quarterly research journal, the Galitzianer.
