Map Refresh: 54 New Galizien Colonies

Fifty-four new Galizien colonies have been located added to the Galizien map, 46 in Ukraine and 8 in Poland.

The locates were done by the Galizien German Descendants based on Galizien Village Family Books, which are collections of families known to have resided in a particular village. These books were created by the Genealogischen Forschungsstelle der Galiziendeutschen (Genealogical Research Centre of the Galician Germans) organization in Germany, who transcribed original church records into family groups and then combined the family groups from a village into a single village book. These villages are not included on the map of Galizien by Rudolf Unterschütz but were located, verified, and indicate where on the Unterschütz map they should be and a link to the family books. Once again, some excellent and creative location work by Galizien German Descendants. Many thanks to them for their continuing work.

The following maps have been updated:
