The family name of Goldner was said to originally be some variantof Parnes,
Parness or Parnis. My grandfather's (or greatgrandfather's) generationrenamed themselves back in Austria-Hungary as Goldner, after a "g'veer"(an important individual) of Lemberg. The reasons for the name change areno longer known. We're Jewish, but I've come across Goldners who are Christian.
My grandfather Elias was born in Lemberg in 1870 to Wolf Zev. Wedon't know Elias' mother's name. Elias was a grain dealer, buying fromfarmers and selling to wholesalers.
Elias married Leja Krumztock, daughter of Reb Mo(i)she Daniel Krumztockof Warsaw. (The family name may have been spelled Kramsztyk.) Leja's mother'smaiden name may have been Blume. Either Leja or Elias came from a familywith an innkeeper.
Elias emigrated to Philadelphia in 1903. The name Wisloboki,not Lemberg,
appears on the ship's log as the city of origin and is repeatedon my
father's naturalization papers. Perhaps Wisloboki was a neighborhoodin, or
suburb of, Lemberg. My grandfather sent for his family in 1905.
Does these names sound familiar to any Galizianers? Does anyone knowwhat or where Wisloboki was back at the turn of the century?

Thank you for putting up this informativesite. Like many others in this guestbook, I am interested in searching my roots. I learned that my grandfather's family came from Lemburg originally. Theyemigrated to the USA some time before WorldWar 1. Apparently they were some kind of innkeepersat the end of the 19th century and I remember hearing that KaiserWilhelm had stopped at the inn.
Does anyone know the name "Springer" or, originally,"Spruenger"? My grandmother's familywas "Tishler", also from the area, I believe. Can someonedirect me to additional sites I can search?

I was wondering who I wouldcontact when
looking for my great
grandmothers family. There is a possibility that shemight have come from Lviv. Her name was Marianna Deregielambo. She marrieda Roch Zima. Their daughter, in turn, married my grandfather in the USA.They were both from small villages in what is now Southern Poland, outsideof Krosno, Jasionka and Lubatowa. It is not usual for people with Italiansurnames to be found in this area., I'm guessing thatMarianna's fatherwas some type of travelling artisan, painter, stone mason, or horsethief. God only knows. Please let me know of who I might contact in Lvivthat might shed some light on the matter.

grandmother, Taube, came to the US after WWII.
I did locate a listing of names from towns under

(Marraige, Birth, Death) which I cannot seem to getback to. The name was
not listed as Zell but as Joel. I presume thatthe latter name may be

so, then the name may have been changed when my fathercame to the US in

Hi ! I really don't know, whether I should useEnglish or
it out in Russian, but as I believe , not everybodyhere is either
Ukrainian (sorry, can't do it on my Netscape e-mail)or Russian speaker
(KOI-8) , I'll go into English.
Yeah, really tnx for Lvov's page. I left it at 1974and was quite
eager to see it again - and I did it twice, bringingthe second time my
older boy for his bar-mitzva trip to see the beautiesof my home town. Even
though it was somewhat dirty and drab,-I still wasproud of it. By the
way, I'm 52nd school 1970 graduate and my Englishteacher was Yekaterina
Vasilyevna (don't remember her surname, but if shestill leaves - can
smbdy give her a kiss on my behalf?)
My only hope for Lviv is that city's fathers willcome to their
senses, will recall the city's international characterdespite the bad blood
between ukrainians, russians, jews and poles,willtame the most
outrageous nationalists, will stop looking for theirown immediate good and will
start pouring more effort and vigor into re-makingof Lviv.

IT IS EXTREMELY NICE TO SEE SOME INFORMATION ABOUTMY OLD HOME TOWN. WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BOY,WE WERE ALL PROUD OF THE FACTTHAT OUR CITY WAS CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES IN EUROPE.THEREWERE MANY WELL KEPT PARKS WITHIN THE CITY WHERE LOCAL PEOPLE COULD ENJOYMOMENTS OF RELAXATION AND ADMIRE GARDENS FULL OF FLOWERS AND A VARIETYOF TREES. SOME OF THE PARKS WERE ALSO AVAILABLE DURING WINTER MONTHS FORSKIING AND SLEDGING. ONE REMARKABLE FACT ABOUT THE CITY, WHICH WAS NOTGENERALLY KNOWN, IS THAT WERE THREE ARCHBISHOPS RESIDING WITHIN IT'S BOUNDARIES.THERE WAS ROMAN CATHOLIC,GREEK CATHOLIC, AND ARMENIAN CATHOLIC. THE CITYALSO BOASTED OF TWO MAJOR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS; THE UNIVERSITY OF LWOW ANDLWOW POLYTECHNIC. THERE WERE ALSO TWELVE HIGH SCHOOLS AND ONE PRIVATE SECONDARYSCHOOL, TO PROVIDE EDUCATION FOR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OF THE CITY AND THESURROUNDING AREA.
