Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Yehuda is spelled with a final ALEPH and not a final HEY #galicia

The reason names are spelled with an aleph instead of a hey is that they
are based on Aramaic spelling.

My great grandmother Hinda SELKOWITZ (ZELKOWICZ) who was born in Klobuck,
Poland and buried (1916) in the Washington Cemetery also has a final aleph
at the end of her name on her gravestone. I spell mine with a hey.

Look at Chad Gadya >from the Passover Haggadah and the Mourner's Kaddish
for a proliferation of words ending in aleph.
