A Shtetl Called Dukla

Welcome to Dukla and Jewish Genealogy! Dukla is located in the southern part of Poland, at latitude 49° 34´, longitude 21° 41´. Although the town began in Poland, it was part of of Galicia (an Imperial Province of the Austrian Empire) from 1776 to1919.

On the map below, Dukla is surrounded clockwise by Map of Galicia Iwonicz-Zdroj , (7 miles ENE), Rymanow(8 miles East), Krempna (8 miles WSW) Zmigrod (7.5 miles WNW), Chorkowka (6 miles North) and Jedlicze (10 miles North) and Krosno (9 miles NNE). Most of these towns had large Jewish populations until World War II. Those towns that have web pages are underlined in BLUE above; the Krosno web site is a regional one that incorporates information from the entire area. To view the background of our genealogical research group, go to the KehilaLinks page on Zmigrod. On this Zmigrod page you will find in-depth history of the area (Galicia), stories from folks born in the area, fascinating travelogues, links to pertinent web pages on JewishGen, and holocaust information.

Even more importantly, if you are visiting this page because your family came from Dukla, you might want to read about the surrounding communities too, as in Galicia marriages were most often arranged between families from nearby towns; and the young couple lived in one of the family towns. So even if, say, your great grandfather came from Dukla, it is possible that his people came from a neighboring shtetl!

Please feel free to contact any or all of us if you have any questions or information to add. Just like our research, this is an evolving project!

    List of Survivors from the Polish Archives

    The following is a list I found on the Yad Vashem web site. The source is the Polish Archive "Zydowski Instytut History Cznyzih" in Warsaw. The List contains 110 names with parents names and ages included. I believe this list was created around 1943. I created this table from the document images which can be viewed below the table. I've translated the titles as best i could. Phyllis
