Gesher Galicia has decided to index all the names of Galitzianers from a book, in three volumes, that details Jewish refugees from towns in Galicia to other parts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (many to Vienna) in 1914-15, the time of the outbreak of the First World War. The title, in Polish, is: Księga pamiątkowa wygnańców wojennych z Galicyi i Bukowiny 1914-1915 oraz album pamiątkowa [Commemorative book of refugees from war from Galicia and Bukovina 1914-1915, and commemorative album].]]>

Austrian Ministries Indexing Projecthttp://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/austrian-ministries-indexing-project/ http://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/austrian-ministries-indexing-project/#comments Fri, 01 Aug 2014 08:57:28 +0000 http://www.geshergalicia.org/?post_type=projects&p=8632/

Gehser Galicia has learned of an interesting set of bureaucratic records generated by the Austrian goverment in the 19th and early 20th century which involves the Jewish population of Galicia. These Austrian Ministries Registers are now held in AGAD, the State Archive of Older Records in Warsaw, Poland.]]>

Gesher Galicia proudly announces the completion of the indexing of the Tarnopol 1910 Jewish Census, the last official Galician census conducted by the Austrian government. Although the Austrian Empire - and the Polish government, which followed after the collapse of the Empire - conducted censuses over an eighty-year period, very few original enumerations with names have survived. Tarnopol, a large city about 128 miles east of Lemberg (Lwow, Lviv,) attracted residents from all over Galicia, and even further afield, so the 1910 census is one of the more important records of its kind for Galician researchers and academics.   Containing almost 14,000 names, it enumerates every Jewish resident living in Tarnopol in 1910, along with information on people who had moved away permanently, or were studying in other locales, provided by family members.   Entire households are listed together with house numbers, professions, and ages, with relationships clearly delineated.]]>
