Re: New features added to the All Galicia Database #galicia

for any listings of a last name beginning with SCH or SH within
10 miles of Bobrka. Not possible. Is there something wrong with
the web site or search engine?

Gesher Galicia is happy to announce that we've added two new

Galician towns. So, for example, you can now search the database
for everyone with the surname "Cohen" who lived within 15 km of
Lviv (Lwow), or everyone with the given name "Rifka" who lived
within 75 km of Nadvirna (Nadworna), and so on....
