I'm trying to find my Grandfathers birth certificate, he was born in Lwów/ Lvov 1922 back when it was Poland.

I've searched both the Galacia Database and Jewish Gen including all the usual Ancestry.com, Findmypast stuff etc...

Unfortunately, I have found nothing, I have no idea of the village or what cemetery.

Any tips?

    What year do you expect that his birth occurred in? If it was before 1918 then, if you are comfortable to provide his name, that will be OK with respect to our Privacy Policy at the help center, and may help us locate the record. – PolyGeo Oct 30 '18 at 19:42

    @PolyGeo Probably after 1918 or else he would have said he was born in Lemberg, Austria-Hungary :) – Bregalad Oct 30 '18 at 20:50
  • He was born in 1922 and also forced to serve in the Deutsche Volksliste. – user1261605 Nov 1 '18 at 20:00
  • Do you have a link to any evidence of decease for him? With something like a link to a death/funeral notice, grave location, etc the opportunity to provide his name here opens up. – PolyGeo Nov 1 '18 at 23:06
  • Yes he died here in the UK, he came here after WW2. – user1261605 Nov 2 '18 at 12:31
