Pronounced Yaslo! ...This web page is devoted to what was once the shtetl Jaslo in Galicia. Galicia was a province or Kronland of Austria from 1772 through 1919; when Austria lost the war, this province was returned to Poland. Many of our ancestors emmigrated from Jaslo to the United States, Israel and elsewhere.
Jaslo was the county seat; it was a thriving community.
If you are visiting our page because your family came from Jaslo (latitude 49° 45´ longitude 21° 28´) or one of the surrounding communities remember that often marriages were arranged between families from neighboring towns, so you may well find information on your surnames where you least expect it.
The map below shows the area of southern Poland today with many of the area towns...each one circled has a KehilaLinks page!
The towns around Jaslo were:
(krosno is 15 miles ESE of Jaslo), this is the master KehilaLinks page, with stories and photographs;

This web page is our loving tribute to the memory of our ancestors who braved the trip and left a legacy for future generations. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or information to add. Just like our research, this is an evolving project!

"In 1437, district head (starost) from Biecz imposed a fine of 60 grzywna (a measure of weight of gold or silver used in medieval central Europe equal to 196.26g to 201.86g) on Jaslo's townsfolk and Jews who 'disturb the peace among themselves by word or deed'".
It was a considerable sum that would buy about 20 hectares of suburban land in those days.
