Austria or Ukraine records?

My grandparents were born in Paniwci, Galacia, Ukraine.  However, at the time of my grndf's birth Austria had conquered the Ukraine.  Does anyone know if I should try to find family records via Austrian archives or the Ukraine?  M grndf was born in 1871.  The church of his village was destroyed and no other records are available according to the Ukrainian Embassy when Ukraine gained its indpendance.I look forward to any advise you may have to offer.Thank you, Ellen…See More

Meaning of numbers and name on grave

Above is a picture of a grave that is in Scotland but I do not know the location.  The burial was in 1954.  A the bottom right corner are the numbers 37532, on the left corner is a name that I cannot read.  I am wondering if anyone knows what these would stand for?  Thanks, Ellen…See More
