Our first video for free viewing is the lecture by Brooke Schreier Ganz who designed our new website and also created the All Galicia Database. This presentation was given on Monday, August 5, 2013 at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Boston, Mass.
Welcome to our new home for Galician research and historical videos, including presentations at conferences.
Come along on a tour of Gesher Galicia's newly relaunched website! Debuting in January 2013, the new site is a one-stop resource for people interested in researching their families and ancestral towns from the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia, which is today split up between southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The site features new content and resources for 400+ Galician towns and 2700+ Jewish Galician families. It also has nearly 100 searchable online articles and 50+ full PDF issues from almost two decades of "The Galitzianer", Gesher Galicia's long-running quarterly publication about Galician Jewish life. Learn about our searchable inventory page of 1700+ maps, landowner records, and tax records from Galician towns, now being transcribed and put online for free searches. And newly online is the Gesher Galicia Family Finder, enabling members who are logged into the website to access new features and connect with other researchers.
Please note: our full slate of conference presentations will soon be uploaded to the "Members Only" section of the website, as a special member benefit. We will use this video page to offer other videos, documentaries and more that are of interest to Galician researchers. If you have a video to suggest or contribute,
