Timeline and History

"The origins of Cieplice date back to the fifteenth century. The area is characterized by warm springs (which do not freeze even in winter), from which the name of the village comes from. In 1815, they were inhabited by 8,500 people and in the pre-war period the number of inhabitants was 4,500 people, mainly Greek Catholic." (Translated from Polish to English) [2]

Pre 1772 information about Galicia can be found here. In order to visually understand European map boundary changes, I highly recommend watching this brief video.

1772 - 1918: "Jarosław was under Austrian rule (Galicia; Austro-Hungarian Empire) from the First Partition of Poland in 1772 until Poland regained independence in 1918."[3]

"The beginning of school in Teplitsy dates back to 1823. In 1830 in the village there was a school Greek Catholic Church." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

"In 1831 there was a Greek-Catholic parochial church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the village, consecrated in 1681 by the interim bishop Ivan Malakhovsky, who belonged to the Yaroslav Deanery of the Przemysl Diocese, there were 2046 parishioners." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

1831: Asiatic Cholera epidemic

1843: "At the request of Mykhajlo Levitsky, in 1843 the term Ruthenian became the official name for the Rusyns and Ukrainians within the Austrian Empire. By 1900 more and more Ruthenians began to call themselves with the self-designated name Ukrainians." [4] Cieplice was situated in what was historically considered "Red Ruthenia (Medieval timeframe.)" [5]

1847: Typhus and Cholera outbreaks

1848: Annullment/Abolition of Feudalism/serfdom; Political Rebirth of Galicia.

1853 - 1855: The great famine. The "Great Cholera", 1854, "Little Cholera".

1861: First railroad on Ukrainian territory in Galicia (Peremyshyl - Lviv)

1868: "According to the census of the "Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria" in 1868, 2,491 people lived in the village together with the hamlet of Shehda. The lands belonged to Vladislav Czartoryski." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

1880: "According to the "Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland" in 1880, n the Yaroslavl district of the Kingdom of Galicia and Volodymyr, Despite the 90-year Romanization of the village there was no own Roman Catholic parish. Poles belonged to the parish in Sinyava. Instead, there was a Greek-Catholic parish of the Yaroslavl Deanery of the Przemysl Diocese in the village, there were 2300 parishioners. The reason for this was that the majority of the population were Ukrainians (old name Rusyny).Greek Catholic There were two schools: 1-class and 2-class. The lands belonged to the Countess Isabella Dzyalinska (from the house of Czartorysk).In the village there lived 3 families of Orthodox and 30 families (about 300 people) Jews." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

1880 Census: 648 Roman Catholics, 1994 Greek Catholics, 143 Jewish, 1333 Polish, 1479 Ruthenians. 90 Polish landowners.

"In 1881 a "Enlightenment" reading room was opened in the village. In Yaroslavl region, ranked second in the number of books - 747 (as of the end of the 1930's). 50 villagers were members of the reading room ." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

Opinion: Important to note that there was increasing "Polonialization" of this area. Observation that many Ukrainian families began to emigrate elsewhere between 1890 and before WWI due to this "Polonialization", which included the church in Cieplice changing from Greek Orthodox Catholic to Roman Catholic in 1902. My advice for those of you researching families who migrated or were displaced, do not get hung up on records where your ancestor may have indicated they were a certain ethnicity. I think it is safe to assume people from this area spoke German, Polish and Ukrainian. Considering the constant persecution, they may have chosen an ethnicity which would give them the least amount of trouble in their new country. Skye For more information about the Polish and Ukrainian conflicts read here.

1890 Census: 588 Roman Catholics, 2354 Greek Catholics, 157 Jewish, 39 Others, 17 German, 695 Polish, 2359 Ruthenian. 76 Polish landowners.

1900 Census: 710 Roman Catholic, 2481 Greek Catholic, 131 Jewish, 40 Other, 44 German, 660 Polish and 2658 Ruthenian. 63 Polish landowners.

"In 1902 a new church was built on the project of architect Vasily Nahirny." "The building of the former Greek Catholic Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God - now the Roman Catholic Church of the Saints Peter and Paul. The church was built in 1904, and the bell tower is also somewhere in the early twentieth century. Prior to this, in her place was the oldest wooden church of the Nativity of the Mother of God, built in 1681. It was a parochial church and belonged to the Yaroslavl Deanery. The cemetery near the church is fenced, most of the graves are Polish. From the Ukrainian, crumbling graves, in 2014, you could read the name of Duda on the tombstone." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

1905: Year of Strikes in Russia and Russian Revolution. "The Russian Revolution of 1905 was a wave of mass political and social unrest that spread through vast areas of the Russian Empire, some of which was directed at the government. It included worker strikes, peasant unrest, and military mutinies." [6] "The collapse of the revolt in the Russian Partition, coupled with intensified Germanization in the Prussian Partition, left Austrian Galicia as the territory where Polish patriotic action was most likely to flourish."[7]

"In the first half of the 20th century, there were 418 houses in Cieplice." (Translated from Polish to English) [8]

1914: "At the outbreak of First World War in 1914, hostilities between Russia and Austria brought on persecution of Ukrainians by both sides. Russians suppressed all Ukrainian cultural and political activities and exiled many prominent persons to Siberia. Retreating Austrians executed many Ukrainians, who were suspected to sympathize with Russia." [9]

1914 - 1939: Cieplice, Jarosław, Lwów, Polska

"ADVANCE ON LEMBURG, THE ENEMY STUBBORNLY RESISTED. (Press Association War Special) Amsterdam, Wednesday. The report issued today by the German Main headquarters states: North of the Upper Vistula the troops commanded by Colonel General von Woyrsch repulsed Russian attacks against the positions we captured on Monday. The defeated Russians yesterday attempted to arrest the pursuit by the allied armies on the entire front between the San, north of Sieniawa, and the Dniester marshes. In the evening, after hard fighting, the Russians were everywhere thrown out of their positions near Cieplice (north of Sieniawa), south of the Lubaczow-Aawdow sector (south west of Niemirow), west of Jaworow, and west of Sadowa-Wisznia. The pursuit is proceeding. The army of General von Mackensen has captured since Saturday over 40,000 prisoners and sixty-nine machine guns. Between the Dniester marshes and Zurawno the Russians gained some ground, but the general situation there is unchanged." The Guardian (London, Greater London, England) 17 Jun 1915, Thu[10]

"After the World War I and unsuccessful struggles for independence, Galicia ended up being in Poland again. Ukrainian Galicians underwent polonization and discrimination during these years. One could not get a state employment if he would not become Polish Roman Catholic." [11]

1918 to1919: Polish - Ukrainian War.

1920: Jaroslaw County was formed to include Cieplice. Sieniawa was gmina (community). [12]

1940 - 1944: While under German occupation, Cieplice was designated the Gmina (community) of Sieniawa and Adamowska. "After the Second World War the city remained part of Poland. Poland's communist government expelled most of Jarosław's Ukrainian population, at first to Soviet territories and later to territories transferred from Germany to Poland in 1944-45." [13] "In 1945, 2091 residents from 482 homes were displaced to Ukraine." (Translated from Polish to English) [14]

1939 - 1945: Cieplice, Lwów, Distrikt Galizien, Polen "The Second Polish Republic, established in 1918, existed as an independent state until 1939, when Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union destroyed it in their invasion of Poland at the beginning of World War II. Millions of Polish citizens perished in the course of the Nazi occupation of Poland between 1939 and 1945 as Germany classified ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Jews and Romani (Gypsies) as subhuman. Nazi authorities targeted the last two groups for extermination in the short term, deferring the extermination and/or enslavement of the Slavs as part of the Generalplan Ost ('General Plan for the East') conceived by the Nazi régime. A Polish government-in-exile nonetheless functioned throughout the war and the Poles contributed to the Allied victory through participation in military campaigns on both the eastern and western fronts. The westward advances of the Soviet Red Army in 1944 and 1945 compelled Nazi Germany's forces to retreat from Poland, which led to the establishment of a communist satellite state of the Soviet Union, known from 1952 as the Polish People's Republic." [15]

Arrest of innocent people, torture and murder of Ukrainians in Cieplice; murder and robbing of innocent Ukrainians traveling to the Soviet Union by "Bandits":

"Polish translation Anastasia Moroz information about the murder of Ukrainians in Wołczastym, set out in the "Jarosławszczyzna and Zasiannia" 1986. (...) On Saturday, 3 March 1945 numerous Polish gang attacked our hamlet - Wołczasty. Bandits first came to us, because our cottage stood at the entrance to the village. As he told my brother Ivan, one of the bandits, the finca in hand, he ordered everyone to lie on the bed. Ivan managed to escape, but the gunman had shot the whole family - the father Mykola Hysi, my brothers - Petra and Vasil and his sister Eve HYS. All this happened in front of my mother, sitting behind the stove. Gunman shot her four times, but somehow missed. It was not until the fifth bullet smashed face and knocked his teeth.

After the bandit attack in the village began to rob the Ukrainians various villains, like Stan and Jan Pigan Kochan. We all still remember how during the export of the Ukrainian population of our land there for Rudka, in Katy, Polish bandits intercepted 6 carts of deportation and the poor did not come from there is no soul. (...) Until now, years later, I remember the counts of the Roman Catholic priest of Teplice, which defined the number of Ukrainians who were murdered in the vicinity of Teplice over a thousand and that they buried in the local cemetery. These did not include 75 Ukrainians, Poles are shot in the same Teplice. Jarosławszczyzny Ukrainians have to pay a high price for their national individuality."

"Meanwhile, the dispersion task proceeded, first in Rzeszow palatinate, then in Lublin and Cracow palatinates. In the four months which followed 28 April 1947, the Operation Group moved some 140,660 individuals identified as Ukrainians from southeastern to northern and western Poland. Just as the first round of evacuations and deportations had removed about 75 percent of the Ukrainians remaining in Poland in 1944 - 46, Operation Vistula resettled about three-quarters of those who remained in 1947.82 Operation Vistula perfected tactics used in Operation Rzeszow. Soldiers would enclose a village and seal off the area to prevent UPA intervention, then a military or security services officer would read a list of names of those to be resettled. Those identified as Ukrainians were given a few hours to pack, and then relocated to intermediary sites. If men tried to escape when the army encircled the village, they were shot. In general men moving about during the operation were likely to be shot. In some cases Polish soldiers shot men in flight, only to find the “P” for “Pole” in the German identity documents in the dead men’s pockets. Members of households where men were absent were tortured in order to locate UPA soldiers. Several villages were burned as their inhabitants watched.83 Vistula was distinguished from Rzeszow by the more complicated role played by the security services, since Polish authorities were now charged not only with deportation but also with a complex resettlement inside Poland. The final destination and degree of dispersal of groups was determined by the judgment of intelligence officers, whose colleagues were waiting to receive their instructions in sealed envelopes at the end of the line." [16]

"The village burned WW2. After WW2 The inhabitants of Teplice were resettled in settlements of Ternopil, Lviv, Drohobych, Stanislav, Kharkiv, Poltava, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Volyn. For example, the Ternopil region: the city of Terebovlya, the village Borichivka, Lozivka, Loshniv, Ginkivtsi and others. I Of the only Teplice in 1945-46 , 2,091 persons were taken (482 families)----- Many families are resettled in Oles'ka region of the Lviv region (Oles'ky, then Zolochiv district) in September 1944 by the decision of the rural lore (testimony by Anna Karhut). In particular, these are the families of Shehda, Duda, Fedirko, Karhut, Pisechko, Zin, and others. The rest of Ukrainians in 1947 were deported to the former German lands aquired by Poland." (Ukrainian Wikipedia)

After WWII, ethnic Ukrainians who were displaced in Germany could not return to their home of Cieplice, Jarosław, Lwów, Polska, as Poland's new communist government did not allow it. Many went to the USA, Canada, England, France or Ukraine (among other places.)

1945 - 1975: Cieplice, Rzeszów, Rzeszów, Polska. "As a result of territorial adjustments mandated by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II in 1945, Poland's geographic centre of gravity shifted towards the west and the re-defined Polish lands largely lost their historic multi-ethnic character through the extermination, expulsion and migration of various ethnic groups during and after the war." [17]

1975 - 1998: Cieplice, Jarosław, Przemyśl, Polska. "By the late 1980s, the Polish reform movement Solidarity became crucial in bringing about a peaceful transition from a communist state to a capitalist economic system and a liberal parliamentary democracy. This process resulted in the creation of the modern Polish state: the Third Polish Republic, founded in 1989." [18]

1999 to Present: Cieplice becomes a part of Gmina (community) Adamówka, Przeworsk County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship (also known as województwo podkarpackie in Polish.) "There are still dozens of wooden houses of prewar time left, military cemetery of the First World War, located halfway between the Teplitsy and Adamivka. Condition - unobserved, without tombstones."

Genealogy Research

If your family was from Cieplice, but they are not listed in the records, it is important to refer to the image above which shows you all the nearby Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic and Synagogue for the area in 1900. Just as there are many non-Cieplice families who have married or baptized their children in Cieplice, it is safe to assume the same for Cieplice residents marrying or baptizing in another nearby church.

Spelling variations: I have noticed while transcribing records that Ruthenian/Ukrainian surnames letters G, H, B and O, Y, I, U are used interchangably. Which is correct since they are converted from Cryillic to the Polish alphabet? Also consider the name conversion after they left their country to the United States or Canada, as there is no conversion for some letters in the Polish alphabet to the English alphabet (or the language of their destination), only phonetic improvisation.

When you look at the transcriptions for Wikitree profiles, where you see what appears to be a "T" in the middle of a name, it is the Polish letter "ł". In transcribing to profiles the letter "T" was used. What I have seen from those migrating to the United States the "ł" simply became "l" (lower case L); although there are many transcribing errors to the letter "t".

Quick note about who I included in transcriptions (which is finished as of 5/6/2019): I include those who have already some interconnection with other families entered, thus connecting them to the "Wikitree One Tree". I am primarily focused on marriage records, and records between 1870 to present, which will help researchers find their connection. There was only a small handful of people I had omitted from the 1891-1899 birth records, and 1855-1888 marriage records; nearly all of them were from a different village and had no connection. See Cieplice, Jaroslaw One Place Study to see those who I omitted.

Greek Catholic (Ruthenian) Births: (For Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic mixed marriages the general rule followed was that child would be baptized in the same religion as the parent of the same sex.) Warning that while doing transcriptions, often times the mother's mother's maiden name is incorrect (at least 10%, after verifying against a marriage record. It could be a new married name.)

  • The Priest who lives next to the church at Cieplice holds the Roman Catholic records for both Cieplice and Rudka.
  • Sieniawa was the designated community for Roman Catholics from Cieplice. Although you may find records in nearby Lezajsk, Majdan Sieniawksi, or Tarnawiec Roman Catholic Churches.
  • "The Roman Catholic records are more dfficult to find, because they are still stored in 1) local parishes 2) local vital offices or in 3) Archdiocesan Archive in Przemysl (if you mean central part of the former Galicia) - generally closed for all, but open for befriended paid researchers. The situation is different with Greek Catholic records. This church, today known as Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church was banned in communist Poland and new formed Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic after 1945, their vital records (books) went to Vital Offices and State Archives. As you know, we can browse a lot of Greek Church records from Historical Lviv Archive (mostly microfilmed by LDS Church and available at familysearch) and National State Archive in Przemysl. Przemysl digitalized and make open online source for most of Greek Catholics records stored in their archive."
