Niwiska, Its History and Life in Galicia

The following pages contain the history of Niwiska and the Austria-Hungarian region of Galicia. Many of our ancestors said they were from Galicia as Poland was not on the map from about 1770 to 1918. A very detailed description of a typical Galician house in Niwiska is found in the story about Michael Grabiec. Also, the importance of both Blizna and Niwiska is recorded in the article titled “Blizna and Niwiska: Their Place in the History of Space Exploration.”
