While researching my family history I have been trying to locate whatever information I can about the village my father was born in, Lutowiska.  Presently, the village is located in Poland but when my father was born it was part of Ukraine.

As a member of a genealogy group on Facebook called Galacia Family History Group I came across a post that detailed another person’s villages detailes (i.e. admin area, judicial district, and the name of each religious parish/congregation).  There’s an old saying “Ask and you shall receive”.  Well, I asked the poster where they found such detail for the villages of Galacia.  I received a reply directing me to the website Gesher Galacia.  There I found not one Lutowiska but 2 of them (see below).

Another set of information added to my research foundation.  I  can now give additional criteria to my searches regarding Lutowiska.  To the best of my ability I have determined that my father’s village would be the first Lutowiska listed because the Judicial District is Lutowiska and when I check the maps on Google, my father’s village points to that location.
