Nadvirna (Ukrainian: Надвірна, Polish: Nadwórna; Russian: Надворная, translit. Nadvornaya, Yiddish: נאדווארנא Nadverne; also referred to as Nadwirna or Nadvorna) is a city located in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast in western Ukraine. It is the administrative center of the Nadvirnianskyi Raion.

Until World War I, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in the province of Galicia. In the inter-war years, it became part of the Second Polish Republic. It was then first invaded and occupied by the Soviets in 1939, then by the Germans in 1941 during World War II. It was absorbed by the Ukrainian SSR, part of the USSR, after the war, until finally it became part of an independent Ukraine in 1991.

The city is located in a hilly, verdant area about twenty miles northeast of the Carpathian mountains. Major exports and raw materials from the town include salt, oil and petroleum products, and timber. The town was popular at the turn of the twentieth century as a summertime resort, with restaurants and hotels.

Jewish population

Nadvirna once had a large Jewish population, whose recorded history in the city dates from at least 1765. The city is still known for its Hasidic dynasty and rabbinical families, many of whom now live in Israel.

In 1880, a census showed that there were 6,552 people living in Nadvirna, of whom 4,182 (64%) were Jewish. But by 1890, there were 7,227 inhabitants, 3,618 (50%) of them Jewish, and by 1921, there were 6,062 inhabitants, 2,042 (34%) of them Jewish. By 1942 all but a very few of the Nadvirna Jews had been murdered in the Holocaust, some in ghettos created in the city, but many killed in the Belzec concentration camp.

Jewish genealogical records

As of late 2006, the following vital records of the town's former Jewish community were known to have survived, and were available for genealogical research:
  • Birth records: early 1850 - late 1865 - stored at the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine, in L'vov, Ukraine
  • Birth records: 1866-1897; 1903 - stored at the Central Archives of Historical Records (a.k.a. AGAD), in Warsaw, Poland
  • Birth records: 1898-1938 - stored at Urzad Stanu Cywilnego, Warszawie Archiwum (a.k.a. the Warsaw USC Office), in Warsaw, Poland
  • Marriage records: 1890-1939; 1942 - stored at Urzad Stanu Cywilnego, Warszawie Archiwum (a.k.a. the Warsaw USC Office), in Warsaw, Poland
  • Death records: 1868-1892 - stored at the Central Archives of Historical Records (a.k.a. AGAD), in Warsaw, Poland
  • Death records: 1893-1940; 1942 - stored at Urzad Stanu Cywilnego, Warszawie Archiwum (a.k.a. the Warsaw USC Office), in Warsaw, Poland
  • Kahal (Jewish community) records: 1924-1939 - stored at the State Archive of Ivano-Frankovsk Oblast, in Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine
  • Kahal (Jewish community) records: 1933-1935 (Registry of local Zionist organization) - stored at the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine, in L'vov, Ukraine
  • Holocaust records: 1941-1944 - stored at the State Archive of Ivano-Frankovsk Oblast, in Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine
  • Property records: 1785-1788; 1819-1820; 1847-1879 - stored at the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine, in L'vov, Ukraine
  • Police and KGB records: 1920-1932 - stored at the State Archive of Ivano-Frankovsk Oblast, in Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine
This is only a partial list of available records, and it only references records from the actual town of Nadvorna proper. There are also records available from the Nadvorna Poviat, which is the larger administrative district that included several smaller local villages.

Note that records less than 100 years old stored in Poland -- which in this case means either AGAD or the Warsaw USC office -- are not open to the public due to strict Polish privacy laws. This does not affect records stored in Ukraine.

Some of these vital records, particularly the ones stored at AGAD in Warsaw, have been microfilmed by the Mormons (LDS Church) and the microfilms are available to research at their Family History Centers, free of charge.
