Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia is honored to welcome two new archivists to serve on our board of Archival Advisors. They are:
Olesia Yuryevna Stefanyk, Director of the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), and
Ewa Grin-Piszczek, Archival Custodian at the Polish State Archive in Przemyśl.

Olesia Stefanyk graduated from the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, in the Faculty of Philology. She has been the director of TsDIAL since 2019, having previously served as deputy director for 13 years. As deputy director, she was responsible for identifying and classifying a large mass of documents relating to the Ukrainian, Polish, and Jewish communities of what is now western Ukraine. She has also represented TsDIAL at various conferences, including at the international Congress of Archivists.

Ewa Grin-Piszczek graduated in History from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and subsequently was awarded a doctorate in History from the Mikolaj Kopernik University in Torun. She has contributed articles to many historical and archival journals, yearbooks, and dictionaries, largely about the town of Przemyśl and the wider region of south-eastern Poland. Her most recent book, from 2020, is "Power Elites of Przemyśl from the 14th Century to the Beginning of the 17th Century."

With these appointments, we look forward to a further and strengthened collaboration with these two important archives.
