Galician "Yellow Pages"

The Schematyzm Galicyjski [Galician Schematism] is a potential source of genealogical information, and can be browsed online.

The equivalent of today's Yellow Pages, the Schematyzm Galicyjski was published from 1782 to 1914. Every issue was arranged according to the administrative divisions in effect at that timel and includes an index containing the names of localities and surnames.

The Schematyzm Galicyjski is available on the website of the Malopolskie Genealogical Society, and was digitized from the collections of the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow.
