More about Eastern Galician Jewish vital records on FamilySearch #galicia

Mark Jacobson

Thanks to Renee Stern Steinig for her message about Galician record
images on FamilySearch. Gesher Galicia would like to add some
additional information about using these records.

While it is exciting to have these record images available online for use,
we have to report that these records >from the Lviv Archive cannot be
directly downloaded to your computer. Individual images can only be
viewed, not saved. This means you can see the records, zoom the image
and save capture images of what you see on your screen using the
snipping tool or print screen, but you cannot save image files of entire
page images. Snipping is useful for saving individual records on any
particular page of records, but there can be problems if you want to
save an entire page or if you are working with post 1877 records that
cover two pages.

In addition to the JRI-Poland list of microfilm numbers Renee mentioned,
Gesher Galicia has an updated online inventory, sorted by town, of all
the Jewish Galician vital records in Ukrainian archives (including some
that were not microfilmed by the LDS). This inventory includes LDS
microfilm numbers and item numbers on the microfilm rolls. Knowing the
item number can make it easier to search for the record book you need.
Our inventory is free for everyone to use: .
We think our inventory will be useful for searching the FamilySearch
website for the Galician records: .

Gesher Galicia can report that we have reviewed all of these films of
Galician vital records and have indexed many of the records on these
films. The results of our indexing by our many teams of volunteers can
be searched on our All Galicia Database:
