Skałat was the seat of the Skałat Administrative District (AD).
The Skałat AD included the following Judicial / Tax Districts (JD):
Changes in ADs and JDs occurred during different periods of time. ADs and JDs were designated by the Austrian Government in 1877 for the purpose of collecting Jewish birth, marriage and death records. By 1906 and until 1914. (the end of Austrian rule) new ADs and JD's were added and / or changed. A further change occurred during the interwar years (1918 -1939). This is reflected here and on the shtetl pages included in the Suchostaw Region Research Group. You will notice that, at times, more than one AD or JD is listed for a shtetl with the note: 'depending on the time period'.
Information about Administrative Districts can be found on our website. It is important for the Genealogist / Family Historian researching towns in what was formerly Galicia to understand the differences due to time periods and other factors that resulted in the changes in Administrative Districts.
The following shtetlach belonged to the Skalat Administrative District:Grzymałów, Kałaharówka, Kołodziejówka, Krasne, Molczanówka, Ostapie, Tarnoruda, Touste (near Skałat)
