Searching for: Galician Town Names

Found myself playing detective today, so I thought I'd put this out there.



Transcribed directly from the marriage record of Alex and Dora Hillinger--top is his, bottom is hers, transcribed by mouse, and a bit wobbly because of that, so I hope you will excuse. Any help defining these towns would be immensely helpful. I've been trying to figure them out with the help of different maps, particularly this one, but having no luck.

His may be Sędziszów, which is now located in Poland (which would be the generally correct area according to Sam's passport, which lists him as Polish), but I'm not entirely sure if it's in the right are of Poland to be the town I'm looking for.

Hers I can't find anything for at all. I'm not even sure what letter that would be at the beginning of the name. C, possibly, or L, or even G or D, though it doesn't look like the G of Galizien.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the Jewish towns/villages in Galicia?

For her: Possibly Czudin, Bukovina?

For her, I find this: http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~shtetm~-1046528
But I see no mention of it being part of Galicia...

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
