Galicia. Galicia is the name given to the portion of Poland which was occupied by the Austro-Hungarian Empire between 1772-1918. The Eastern portion ceded to the Ukraine after World War II. The region is known as:

  • Галиция [Galiciya] in Русский [Russki] (Russian)

  • Austrian Poland in some Immigration Passenger Lists

The full name of the province was "Galizien und Lodomerien" in German, or "Galicia et Lodomeria" in the Latinized form.

This region should not be confused with Galicia in the northwestern corner of Spain (Galizien, Galicia, Galice, Galizia, Galicja, Galicio). This Galicia is one of Spain's 17 Autonomous Communities.
