Zbaraż was the seat of the Zbaraż Administrative District (AD).
The Zbaraż 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'.
