Jim makes a great point. The newsletters of the Chicago-based Polish
Genealogical Society of America AND of other Polish-American genealogical
societies regularly print translations of entries >from Slownik Geograficzny.

Note that one of the translations on the PGSA site is of the entry on
Galicia, which should interest us all.

Another place to check to see if the entry for your town has been translated
is PERSI, the Periodical Source Index, in which many of those newsletters
are indexed. PERSI is available online (subscription-based), on CD-ROM, and
at research libraries. The Allen County Public Library, which maintains
PERSI, will provide copies of articles for a fee. See

for more information.
