Welcome to our home for Galician research and historical videos, including videos of conference and regional meeting presentations and oral histories. We offer many videos which are free to view on our site, while others are only available to GG members who are logged into the Members Portal.
Scroll down to watch the tutorial video: “Using the New Gesher Galicia
Website to Research Towns and Families,” which is an excellent primer on how to use all facets of our website by the woman who
designed it, Brooke Schreier Ganz. We also offer two human-interest stories: "I Remember Jewish Drohobycz," with the late
rabbinic scholar, David Einsiedler, and an interview (in Hebrew) with 92 year-old Shlomo Kahane, who was born in Grzymalow, Galicia
(today Grimaylov, Ukraine.) Other methodology presentations are “Polish Magnate Landowner
Records: Bringing the Lords’ Jews to Life," recorded at the 2013 IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Boston and
the Gesher Galicia Spring 2014 Regional Meeting, which
includes Galician research updates and the "Austria, Poland, Ukraine: 3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days of Discovery"
lecture by Pamela Weisberger and John Diener in New York City.
These additional video presentations are available only to our members:
- Gesher Galicia Luncheon at the IAJGS 2013 Conference - Lee Feinstein, the former U.S. Ambassador to Poland
