Steven Turner

Gesher Galicia webinar series got off to a good start last week with Dr. Turner’s presentation on his trip through former Galicia. We appreciate the positive feedback received to date.

This week, we are pleased to announce the posting of two educational programs by Dr. Andrew Zalewski, VP, Gesher Galicia, who presents on:

University Records: Jewish Medical Students
Educational Program Series: Learn about the opening of higher education to Jews, inspect university records as sources of genealogical information, and discover the inspiring stories of Jewish medical students from Galicia. The program brings you archival information from several universities attended by Galician Jews (from 1790’s until 1939), it also informs on our annotated database of Jewish students and other educational material.

Cadastral Surveys: Names, Houses and Land Records
Educational Program Series: Unlock genealogical information from early population surveys by learning about the Josephine and Franciscan surveys. Hidden gems about Jewish members of Galician communities are shown through records; the transition between patronymics and hereditary surnames can be also ascertained in few instances. The program points to an additional material on this topic, which is available to Gesher Galicia’s members.
