Photographs of the graves in the burial societies of emigrants from the area of Bircza have been uploaded to the Bircza Online site, along with plot location, burial society, and date of death. The list and accompanying photographs include nearly 450 individuals. At times the information listed corrects that which can be found on the Mt. Hebron Cemetery Web site (numerous misspellings). The list and photographs can be found by clicking on lists on the Bircza Online site, http://bircza.reproots.org/.


Gesher Galicia is a non-profit organization carrying out Jewish genealogical and historical research on Galicia, formerly a province of Austria-Hungary and today divided between southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The research work includes the indexing of archival vital records and census books, Holocaust-period records, Josephine and Franciscan cadastral surveys, lists of Jewish taxpayers, and records of Galician medical students and doctors - all added to our searchable online database. In addition, we reproduce regional and cadastral maps for our online Map Room. We conduct educational research and publish a quarterly research journal, the Galitzianer. Gesher Galicia is also organized for the purpose of maintaining networking and online discussion groups and to promote and support Jewish heritage preservation work in the areas of the former Galicia.

You can search our free All Galicia Database, Map Room, and archival inventories, and read about member benefits starting at $50 per year. You can also join online.
