All above can be viewed w/an ancestry membership:

LDS has filmed GC Church Registers for selo/village Malkowice > Grodek Jagellionskij was powiat (county) and gmina (judicial/tax district) > Lemberg/Lwow/Lviv Region> Historic Galicia Province > Austro-Hungarian Empire from late 18th century to 1918. During Interwar Period came under Reconstituted Poland's domain. Post WW2 became part of SSR Ukraine under Soviet domain until 1991.

Important Resource for anyone researching Galician Roots:

Today Fedko's Malkowice = Mavkovychi = Мавковичі (in Ukrainian) > Horodetskij raion/district > Lvivska oblast/region > Ukraine is clustered w/my maternal ancestral village called Kernytsia. Looks like there are still Pelech (closer pronunciation Pelykh/Pelych = Пелих) living in the ancestral village.

Fedko's selo/village comes w/its own little lake.
