The mission of the Rohatyn District Research Group is two-fold. The first mission is to be an online focal point for descendants of Jewish ancestors from Rohatyn and the surrounding communities where members can perform genealogical research, share family history, and connect with other members. The second mission is to gather data and information about towns in the Rohatyn district from various sources to aid the genealogical research of our family history. The hope of this group is that in combining both these missions, we can create a better picture of how our ancestors lived and interacted with other citizens of the town.
