Welcome to the Gesher Galicia Membership Page!

We look forward to having you become part of the Galician genealogical and historical research community.

Individuals and organizations can join Gesher Galicia at rates starting at $36.00 per year. The Gesher Galicia membership year is from January 1 through December 31 but you can join at any time. There are several pricing options and you can pay by check, PayPal or credit card.

Why join?

Members get a year’s subscription to our quarterly journal, “The Galitzianer,”and password access to the Members Only Portal where you can search the Gesher Galicia “Family Finder,” where members can list their surnames and towns of interest and connections can be made.

There is also a searchable database for 20 years of back issues of “The Galitzianer,” streaming instructional videos from past IAJGS Conference talks by experts in the field of research, a Galician research guide and special access to digitized records from Eastern European Archives.

The most important reason to join, however, is to support Gesher Galicia’s year round work of inventorying archival records, digitizing documents, gathering cadastral maps and adding indexes to the All Galicia Database so you can expand your research horizons.

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.
