In honor of Jewish Records Indexing Poland's 10th anniversary, "The
Galitzianer," the quarterly publication of Gesher Galicia, is devoting a
major portion of our summer issue to "success stories" involving JRI-Poland,
which specifically relate to "Galician" research.
If you've used their remarkable indexes make inroads in your family trees or
towns of origin...ordered records >from Polish archives, or used these
indexes to locate missing ancestors in Family History Center
microfilms...please send us your stories!
Try to keep these anecdotes short...a few paragraphs will be fine unless its
a very involved story. Include as much detail as possible, with a
beginning, middle and end. If you want to send a JPEG image of the record(s)
that lead you to your success...or an old photograph or map that ties into
your story, please do.
Take your time to produce the finished product, as we won't be able to
rewrite it for you. Even a sentence or two of your successes...the road you
traveled to knock down a brick wall....what this enormous undertaking by
Stan Diamond & company has meant to you...will help make this tribute
as successful as your stories.
Please send your copy, if possible, in a Word document, directly to:
Due date: July 13th (but sooner will be better) And remember--only
Galician research, please!
