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!

A Shtetl Called Dukla: Table of Contents

  • The Dukla Synagogue
  • The Dukla Cemetery:

    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.

    Polands National Digital Archives

    Phyllis Kramer, March 2019

    The Polish Archives have been changing rapidly in the last year or two. And I suspect it will change again soon. But recently is what I was able to access some Dukla records, and here are the tools i use and the steps i took:

    For research in the Polish National Digital Archives (NDA) for Western Galicia. I would suggest that it is easier to research these archives directly with four tools:

    1. Howard Finks NDA Guide for JRI-Poland , which can be downloaded from http://jri-poland.org/help/NDA_Guide.pdf. It gives step by step instructions.
    2. JRIP's galician vital record titles translated...http://jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf,
    3. Google translate for translating data within the records, and
    4. Chrome for translating web pages, titles, search commands.
    I usually begin by going directly to the NDA at https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/ and key in a town name and a polish word for Jewish Records (Hebrajski or Hebrew, Israel or izraelickie, Jewish or Juden, Mojzesz or Zydow); each record collection uses different titles. Then i click scans only, to reduce the number of results, then i use Chrome to translate the titles of the results. Next is the really hard part...slogging thru the unindexed records...but wow if i find something!

      1939 German Minority Census: Folks born in Dukla

      Most of the German 1939 minority census has been indexed and you can research surnames **and towns**. I put in my ancestral Polish and Austrian towns and was able to search Jewish people living in Germany in 1939 who were born in that specific Polish or Austrian town, getting their birth date, maiden name and location in 1939. Of course you can search by surname too.

      The description is at http://tracingthepast.org/minority-census. It reads: "Currently, the searchable data includes persons who can be proven to have perished in the Holocaust, those who were born prior to 1903 (+110 years ago), and others who deceased prior to 1984 (+30 years ago). Of the approximately 410,000 original entries, about 275,000 (or around 67%) of the "Minority Census" are available here online... Tracing the Past is honored to have the opportunity to share this research tool online. " and the index can be searched here:

      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
