I've dealt with the Archive agency that the Lwow Archives passed me on to
as according to them that's how it had to be done
quite possibly a commission thingy. It took a while to get the info back
and looking at the information it's the info that went
astray at the end of WW2 and to which the Ukrainian authorities keep
insisting that they had the right to appropriate it
even though it was Polish property. So the info coming from Lwow is
almost entirely based on old Polish evidence books and

I should have said that all my father's siblings except the two

are quite old, from the 17th century or earlier, if I recall, there
is nothing for more recent times.
If tapes are ordered through the LDS Church, one must view them at a
Family History Center, and they are not for purchase unfortunately.
Go to <familysearch.org> for more info on their library catalog and
also for locations of Family History Centers. Even though the LDS
Church has filmed extensively in Poland, that is not to say that they
have filmed all of Poland's holdings--far from it. I've been
extremely lucky. If I find my father's and aunt's records there, I
will let the group know, but I doubt this. Has anyone in the group
dealt successfully with the Lviv Archives? Please let me

Poland beginning, I think, in 1970. In Cerekiew, Bochnia I can go
back further still, and I will do this soon hopefully. I should be
able to get back fairly far in Tarnopol also. This includes more
recent records too--all my father's siblings. The only records I am
going to have problems with are my father's and his youngest sister,
born in 1931. I think one reason I have held off for so long
these two is because I am afraid to hear the words "destroyed during
the war." I have made a couple of inquiries though.
has said the records are in Ukraine. There is one more tape I will
check, and then I will write the Lwow/Lviv Archives.
