The March Issue of the Galitzianer #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG

We are pleased to announce the release of the March 2021 issue of the
Galitzianer, Gesher Galicia’s quarterly research journal. This issue
provides readers with an overview of Galician cadastral maps,
interspersed with vivid map images. Also, as a valuable resource for those
researching Galitzianers who fought in WWI, this issue contains a
comprehensive tutorial on WWI military records and an article about 
German resources on Galician soldiers. Finally, there is a review of Jewish
records in the Przemysl State Archive, a reflective article by a future
archivist, and a heartwarming story of a most unlikely family reunion.

Here is a list of the articles in the March issue:
  • “Tutorial: Understanding Cadastral Maps” by Jay Osborn
  • “Tutorial: WWI Military Records” by Christina Hilsenrath
  • “Galician Finds in German WWI Sources” by Eric Feinstein
  • “Jews from Przemysl” by Ewa Grin-Piszczek  
  • “An Archival Classroom: What Index Books Can Reveal” by Jacob Heisler
  • "Finding Family Serendipitously” by Jan Berlfein Burns
  • “President’s Page” by Steven S. Turner
