butchers, bakers and more. Smaller shtetlach registered their birth, marriages
and death in a nearby larger shtetl. One should research the neighboring area as

- Borszczów Landsmanshaft (Including a list of burial society plots in the New York metropolitan area) . The Erste Borszczower Kranken Untershtitsung Verein [The First Borchover Sick Benefit Society] was founded in 1897. The aim of the society was to support sick and needy members and establish 'brotherly friendship and behavior amongst its members'. Landsmanshaftn, including the Erste Borszczower Kranken Unt. Verein provided social and economic services and support for their members. In 1989, the Jewish Genealogical Society, Inc. (New York) began an effort to identify the names and cemetery locations of all Jewish burial society plots in the New York metropolitan area. These include plots of landsmanshaftn, synagogues, family circles, fraternal organizations and labor unions. The following Borszczów Landsmanshaft plots are listed:
- Erste Borszczower Kranken Unt. Verein - Mt. Zion - Path 15 Left, Gate 5
- Erste Borszczower Kranken Unt. Verein - Beth El (Westwood) - Block 13
- Erste Borszczower Kranken Unt. Verein - Beth David (Elmont) - Section AA, Block 3
- The Borchover Landsmanshaft in New York
- YIVO Landsmanshaftn Collection
Borszczów was the seat of the Borszczów Administrative District (AD).
The Borszczów 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 Borszczów Administrative District:
Bilcze, Cygany, Jezierzany, Korolówka, Łanowce, Łosiacz, Mielnica, Okopy, Skała, Uście Biskupie, Wołkowce ad Borszczów
