from Paris,On behalf of French "Galitzianer genealogy detectives," I wish to send
our condolences to Pamela's family on this sad day of celebration.
I don't know the wife or the mother she was, I am sure she was as
great as she was for us!
We had been lucky to welcome her last October in Paris for a
conference on "non-conventionnal" archives to look for when we are
stopped by a brick wall:
Galician & Polish Research: Unique & Unusual Resources
We were a small group of motivated and skilled searchers (>from
Cercle de Genealogie Juive) but she was 1st, far ahead of us.
With her cadastral maps, her landowner registers and all her other
"tricks in her bag," she opened paths we will follow for years.
On this forum, posts after posts, she took also time to coach or help
many of us. We are grateful to Pamela for all our recovered "Losts."
Concerning Gesher Galicia web site, one of her great achievement,
almost each page will keep memory of Pamela as a legacy to future
I confirm she will be missed by all of us in the Jewish genealogical
