On the map below, Dukla is surrounded clockwise by 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!

South of Dukla lies the Jewish cemeteries; the so-called old cemetery, from the 18th century and the "new" cemetery somewhat later. In the "old cemetery" dozens of tombstones have survived, but are in poor condition and the cemetery was overgrown. There have been many efforts to restore the cemeteries. The new cemetery now has a wall and about two hundred well-preserved tombstones.
In 1993 a group of us hired a researcher who uncovered the following records:
We are willing to share, so please note that we have amassed over 750 birth, death and marriage certificates in total.....including 139 from Dukla which we we have summarized in our Surname list.

Phyllis Kramer. Certainly i would hope that if anyone hires a researcher for this town, or gets records from this town, they would share that with the rest of us. I am dedicated to putting on this web page anything i receive from fellow researchers. Return to Table of Contents
The table below was extracted from the JewishGen database of the 1891 Galician Business Directory. In February of 2015 I added those entries appearing in the 1896 Directory, online at http://genealogyindexer.org/frame/d433/153/d created by Logan Kleinwaks.
Note that listings were similar to the YellowPages directories of today, as they were paid for, and sorted by occupation. The items include: Surname, First name, Dukla or nearby Town, Occupation in German, Occupation translated into English.
