14 Years of The Galitzianer

From the editor of The Galitzianer, Ed Goldstein, a few words about The Galitzianer for those not familiar with it:

It is published four times a year. The typical issue will be 24 pages and contain town reports; a long column by our research coordinator, Pamela Weisberger, reporting on news about research activities and results; a review of a book of interest to Galician researchers; several feature articles and news about Gesher Galicia events. Authors are typically, but by no means always, members of Gesher Galicia. Non-member authors like Brian Lenius writing about Cadastral maps, or Professor Piotr Wrobel contributing a three-part article on “The Jews of Galicia” or a two-part article on “The Seeds of Violence” provide unique viewpoints. Many issues contain lists of names, such as that of “Girls Enrolled in Tarnow Trivium School in 1854″ or “Portrait of a Landsmannschaft: List of Members of the Nadwornier Landsmannschaft” can provide unexpected clues to Galician researchers.

Gesher Galicia is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people research their Jewish family roots in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire province of Galicia, which is today southeastern Poland and southwestern Ukraine. Our organization's primary focus is researching Jewish roots in Galicia, but the diverse community records in our databases contain names that span all the ethnic and religious groups who once lived in this region.
