Index/Tables of Galicia, including Krakow (Skorowidz dóbr tabularnych w Galicyi z W. Ks. Krakowskiem”)  (uses DjVu)

This publication is a veritable goldmine of Jewish property owners! Even though the publication is in Polish, the personal and place names are easily recognizable in English.

Beginning on p. 2 there is an alphabetical list (by location) of property owners. The first two columns are the location names & the Owner/Co-owners names. The last two columns are the District office/District Council & the Notary and County Tax Office.

Beginning on p. 197 (image 200):
Alphabetical List of Owners in Galicia /Krakow: The numbers indicate the index pages of the property owners. Pages 192-196 were transfers of ownership. Page 197 makes corrections of the information:

4                                          Petrik Jakob                              Fagan Jakob Patrik

Be sure to check out the ads, you may spot a family name, even if you are unable to read the description. Of course, you could use and type the words out, using Polish to English---you can leave off the diacritical accents and still get a general idea of what the ads say!---There’s even a bookstore which offers a list of the latest publications (1904-05, of course!).
