Gesher Galicia SIG
We are delighted to announce the release of the December 2019 issue of
the "Galitzianer," the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia.
Spanning centuries, this issue is a smorgasbord of history, politics,
and family narratives--and it raises a host of interesting questions.
How will a new Polish regulation complicating access to records impact
Jewish genealogical research? What can we learn about the Jewish
community in Galicia >from the first Galician census? How
did universal male suffrage impact Jewish political representation
during the Habsburg Monarchy? How do you uncover your familyâ??s past
when the surviving relative doesn't want to talk about it? What should
you consider before interviewing a Holocaust survivor?
The December issue of the journal raises these and other questions
through the following articles:
- "Research Corner: Successes and Hurdles" by Mark Jacobson
- "The First Habsburg Census" by Andrew Zalewski
- "Jewish Deputies >from Galicia" by Borries Kuzmany
- "Looking for My Parents" by Reuven Liebes
- "My Grandmother's Kitchen" by Peter Bein
- "Map Corner: 1850 Cadastral Map of Gorlice" by Jay Osborn
- "A Day with Murray" by Barbara Krasner
- "Membership News" by Shelley Kellerman Pollero
