Ukraine SIG #Ukraine IAJGS Awards to Gesher Galicia - thanks! #ukraine
On behalf of Gesher Galicia, and our entire board of directors, I
would like to thank the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies for honoring our special interest group with
two awards at the IAJGS conference held recently in Boston.
Our Cadastral Map & Landowner Records Project & Gesher Galicia Map
Room received the award for "Outstanding Project that Advances the
Objectives of Jewish Genealogy" and Gesher Galicia was also awarded
the Rabbi Malcom Stern Grant for the Gesher Galicia website and All
Galicia Database. Part of the awarded funds will go towards making
Gesher Galicia a multilingual site so more international users will be
able to easily research their Galician roots.
I also want to thank my co-nominees in the special project category,
Brooke Schreier Ganz and Jay Osborn.

specialty records may be of interest to other regional research
