Debbie Wetlaufer asks:
"Can anyone recommend a book that describes what was going on in the
Krakow region in the 1880s +/-?? I'd like to learn more about the reasons
our ancestors had for emigrating >from the region."
I'm pleased to report that Gesher Galicia has just published an updated
book -- "Krakow: A Guide to Jewish Genealogy" by Geoff Weisgard --
which is now available.
The book is priced at $20, plus shipping and we are working to update the
Gesher Galicia merchandise page to reflect different shipping prices
depending on the destination. In the US the cost for shipping is $3.00.
This book expands the earlier addition, is larger, has more maps and
covers the history of the Jews in Krakow over 150 plus years. Some sample
pages will be on our website soon.
I will also be bringing copies to Israel for the IAJGS Conference; they will be
available by pre-order.
As soon as the Gesher Galicia merchandise page is updated to reflect the
new book I will make a discussion group announcement. Stay tuned...
President, Gesher Galicia
