The Galitzianer

The Quarterly Research Journal of Gesher Galicia

Modification (color/removal of text) by Sarah Cohen-Smith of Todros Geller’s From Land to Land, 1926, wood engraving.

Published since 1993, the Galitzianer is the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia. The journal is published in March, June, September, and December. Members of Gesher Galicia can opt to receive their subscription to the Galitzianer in either digital or paper format.

Past issues of the journal are also searchable and available for download in Gesher Galicia Members Portal.

The Galitzianer encourages submissions by the members of Gesher Galicia. Please consult our submissions policy and instructions for authors for details.

The journal also serves the membership by publishing a broad array of articles contributed by non-members from other genealogical organizations, researchers with diverse expertise, academic institutions, and organizations broadly involved in the mission to preserve Jewish heritage in the former Galicia.

Regular Columns

The journal strives to communicate with Gesher Galicia members via the following regular columns that engage readers in relevant news of our organization, emerging research topics, and other updates:

From the Editor’s Desk by Jodi Benjamin, Editor
Research Corner by rotating authors
Map Corner by Jay Osborn, Gesher Galicia Digital Map Manager

Another regular section is “Faces of Galicia,” which includes photographs and/or drawings submitted by readers and linked to the past Jewish presence in Galicia.

Throughout the year, the Galitzianer also introduces its readers to contributions by the Board of Directors and the external experts from the Gesher Galicia Advisory Board.

Submissions Policy

The Galitzianer accepts written material broadly linked to Galicia (1772-1918), which may also include topics pertaining to earlier (before 1772) or later periods (post 1918). The thematic scope of interest covers family stories, information about unique archival records, tutorials regarding genealogy research, history and geography of Galicia, book reviews, etc. The editorial committee reserves the right to revise or reject a submission, or to defer publication until a later date. Submission of a non-commissioned manuscript does not guarantee its publication.

Prospective authors are encouraged to contact the editor to consult about an interest in a potential topic for a future article. Please direct your queries or suggestions to: submissions@geshergalicia.org.
