Two villages with similar names grouped together - one should be moved
I’m not sure if this is the correct email address to report an error in the metrical records. In the screenshot shown below, the records should be only for Biale Przemyslany Galizien Austria now called Bile Przemyslany L’viv Ukraine. Note that the records description includes Biala Przemyslany, Tarnopil, Poland now called Bile Przemyslany L’viv Ukraine.
The village names are very similar, but not the same at all. Biala/Bila is still in Tarnopil – a suburb and Biala/Bile is still in Przemyslany!
When first researching my family in Biale I assumed that all of the records were correctly attributed – mostly because the incorrect films included my family names.
Item 8 and Item 9 belong to Biala NOT Biale. I had read somewhere that the church records for Biala were destroyed during a fire in the 1800’s – but not all of them apparently! These items include records for Kurowce and Plotycz which are still in Ukraine and still part of Tarnopil!
Catalogue searches always come up with Bielsko-Biala, Katowice, Poland, NOT the same place at all.
