The September Issue of the Galitzianer #galicia #announcements


Gesher Galicia SIG
 

We are delighted to announce the release of the September 2020 issue of the Galitzianer. For those of you journeying into your Galician Jewish roots, this issue includes articles that can help you navigate genealogy databases and interpret vital records. Other articles focus on Galician history. For example, what was it like to be part of the ongoing debate between Jews and Poles during the tempestuous times of 1848, or to be in Brody when the 1867 fire set the town ablaze? In other articles, you will discover what drove a Hasidic young woman to sue her religious parents and how a boy from Grodzisko Dolne ended up in a Nazi concentration camp in the Netherlands.

These questions and more are answered in the September 2020 issue of the Galitzianer, which includes the following articles:

  • “Tutorial: Databases for Galician Genealogy” by Mark Jacobson
  • “Tutorial: Understanding Vital Records” by Tony Kahane
  • “The Battle for Jewish Rights” by Andrew Zalewski 
  • “When Brody Burned to the Ground” by Zack Rothbart
  • “The Intellectual Passion of Anna Kluger” by Rachel Manekin
  • “The Boy from Grodzisko Dolne” by Amanda Kluveld and Jan Weitkamp
  • “President’s Page” by Steven S. Turner
