> I love your web page!! In working on my genealogy research I recently
discovered that my mom's side of the family is from Lvov. Her parents came to New York City in the very early 1900's from Lvov. I am just starting on my mom's side of the family. Her parents were Ellis Island immigrants from Poland...possibly from the Lvov area. I know very little about my mother's side of the family. She was born Judy Teresa Tomczak in New York City. (She passed away in 1990.) I used to have a copy of her birth certificate, but it is in storage at my sister's house in Spain. My mom talked vwery little about her family. I'm not sure why...I know she always said she was the black sheep of the family. I am unsure of her parents names. I know the name Barney was mentioned a few times and her mom's name was different on her birth certificate than she remembered...Josephine or Rosie (maiden name something
like Chemelenska??). She had some brothers and sisters. I remember the names Teddy, Teresa and Jocko but that^Òs it. One brother worked at Jack Dempsey's bar in New York and Jocko was a jockey. My mom got married and moved away and from what I can tell only went back once, maybe twice to see her family in New

> Thank you for the fascinating site. I too am looking for relatives who
may still be in the L'vov area. My father's parents both came from this
area. Although they met and married in the Canadian province of Manitoba
their families knew of each other in Ukraine. North American documents have
the usual smattering of Polish, Austrian or other origins filled in, but it
has always been known that our origins are Ukrainian. My grandfather's
family name is spelled Zapotichny in Canada, Zapotoczny in America and
Zapotozny in France. My grandmothers family name was spelled Pauli, only a
Canadian spelling is known. I have found many people of Polish ancestry with
the last name Zapotoczny but I have not found any close connection. Any
information at all about these family names from the L'vov area would be
deeply appreciated.

> My name is April Stoik (Rodzinski), Winnipeg, Manitoba CANADA
I am working on our family tree and found that Artur Rodzinski spent
most of his childhood in Lvov, where he studied Music and Law. If
anyone can give me more information on this it would really help.
Artur Rodzinski was born to January 2, 1892 of Polish parents in
Dalmatia, Yugoslavia. He spent most of his childhood in the
city of Lvov attending school taking, piano lessons and in due time,
enrolling into the local university to study law. With the
out-brake or World War 1, Joseph Rodzinski, (Artur's father A general in
the Polish army) sent his wife and son to Vienna.
Here, at age 22, the young Rodzinski was able to continue his law
studies at the university. He also enrolled in the Academy of
Music. In 1916 Rodzinski completed his law studies and received a
doctorate in law.
With the end of the war in 1918, Artur Rodzinski was able to return to
Lvov, Poland and try to make a living in music. He soon
found work conducting the pit orchestra at the Lvov Opera house, where
he made his debut directing Verdi's Ernani. In 1920
he moved to the Theater Wielki (Grand Theater) in Warsaw, Poland. From
1925 to 1929 he worked with Leopold Stokowski
(the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra). Following his association
with Philadelphia and Stokowski, Rodzinski moved to
California, conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the next four
In 1933 (until 1943) Rodzinski held the position of conductor and Music
Director of The Cleveland Orchestra. During his
tenure he introduced the novel idea of presenting opera in the concert
hall; and on January 31, 1935, he conducted the fully
staged American premiere of Shostakovich's controversial opera, Lady
Macbeth of Mtsensk. This was one of many opera's
he would conduct with the orchestra. Rodzinski expanded the orchestra's
repertoire, in particular, with 20th century music.
> Upon leaving The Cleveland Orchestra, Rodzinski became conductor and
Music Director of the New York Philharmonic
followed by the same position with the Chicago Symphony.

From: PoochieBud$$$
> Thank you for providing this page. I've never been to L'viv, however my
ancestor's are from the area. For now I will use my nic-name "Bud" and I would
like to give some infomation about our family. My cousin and I are trying with
little success to obtain information regarding our family prior to there
arrival into the U.S.. First, my Mother was born in Lvov, Poland, as per her
birth certificate, as Stephania (Stella) Leona Fischer, on April 21, 1911 and
her brother, Edmund Edward Fischer, born October 19, 1912. In addition, What
few documents we have been able to obtain, show's the various spelling's as
Lvov, Lviv, Lwow as Poland, but Lemberg as Austria. This obviously makes our
heritage somewhat confusing. My grandfather, grandmother, Mother and Uncle,
Migrated to America Aug/Sep 1913, I do Have the ship's name and actual date of
departure and arrival NYC. But First let me get back to my great-grandparents
and grandparents. As we know our great-grandparents remained in Lemberg, his name was Martin Fischer, her name Katarina Bialakowska, and that they where
from Weisenberg, Austria. My grandfather Martin Charles Fischer, Born
November 12, 1884 Lemberg Austria and my grandmother Paulina Rojewska, born
November 1, 1887 (not sure of spelling) Vyshanka, Austria on the death
certificates. However on the ship documents for 1913 and the 1920 Census my
grandmother show's Place of birth as Galicia/Au.,as the country and the mother
tongue Polish. They Settled in Pittsburgh (southside) Pa. as many Poles did,
at the time. Unfortunately, both died at age 34 from Flu/Pneumonia. They had
three other children born in Pittsburgh, Pauline Julia Fischer, Martin Charles
Fischer II, and Matthew (Mieczyslaus) Paul Fischer. All 5 children where
placed in the Holy Family Orphanage in 1921 when both parents had passed away.
Should anyone, who also listed there families, as I have read, and may have
some info or opinion, let us hear from you. As for myself, I wonder if I'm
German, Austrian,Polish,Jewish,Galitzen or whatever.
If I have a church or documented records is there a
central archives or other office i should contact and should I have anything I
write translated into the Ukraine language, is there any possible advice you
can offer me.
Thanks for taking the
time to read this, I'm hoping I didn"t make it too confusing. Best Wishes to
all, Bud

families in this shetyl before the war, only 10 survived. They left what
was then Lvov, Ukrane in the the late 50's and went to Israel. Then then
emigrated to the United States in the Early 60's. My mother was a baby
during the war and my Grandmother survived the war by escaping to Siberia
while my Grandfather was mobilized. They all were re-united after the war,
but over 70 members of the family perished. Our family names are

> I want to thank you again for your site. I emailed you about my family
name and because of one of your Links and some continued research after
years of research I finally found the spelling. My Great-Grandfather's
name was Nathan Loshchever from Lemberg, Galicia, he migrated to the
United States sometime around the turn of the century. So not to bore
you with too many details I just want to say "thank you" again.

long time and I just found your site. The first time I have seen
pictures of the city. My Great-Grandfather came from Lemberg-Lvov
around the turn of the century and before he immigrated to the United
States our family name was changed due to the fact that all of the
families records were burned in the synagogue. My Grandfather before he
died told me how to pronounce the name but he did not know how to spell
it. I will try to spell it just how it sounds...Loschuver... I know
this is not the way to spell it but I have tried many resources and
there does not seem to be any name or variation of this name. If anyone
has any idea or any way of finding out please contact me. Thank You in
