Lviv Metrical Records




JRI-Poland and Gesher Galicia have embarked on a project to provide the most accurate inventory of the LDS films of the Jewish vital records from the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv. The inventories presented here have been compiled by Tony Kahane and were created and updated by volunteers who have viewed the films. We believe these are the most accurate inventories available.

The table below contains the list of microfilms with Jewish records filmed by the LDS Family History Library at Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv. These films may be ordered at any one of the thousands of local Family History Centers worldwide. Click here to find a Family History Center.

Neither JRI-Poland nor Gesher Galicia has reviewed the films or the privately developed inventories. A more detailed inventory showing the LDS Inventories and inventories of Jewish Genealogists who have viewed these films can be accessed by clicking here. Corrections to the inventory resulting from viewing of a film should be reported to Mark Halpern.

1) Entries in Bold type are towns with NO records indexed at the AGAD branch of the Polish State Archives.

2) Entries in Italic type are from index books (no individual records) or Certificates, which we have not seen and we cannot comment on their content.

Surviving records less than 100 years old are held in the Civil Records Offices (Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) of each town.

For information on the 20th century records available for your town, visit the Routes to Roots Foundation website, click on the 'SEARCH DATABASE' button (on the right side) and enter the town name. Look for the town name in the Repository/City column of the search results. There are typically links to lists of available births, marriage and death records for the town.

Note, however, the Routes to Roots Foundation database may indicate turn of the century records that have already been transferred to the appropriate branch of the Polish State Archives where they can be indexed for the JRI-Poland database.

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt Organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
