We at Gesher Galicia are shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic
loss of our good friend, Phyllis Kramer z"l. Phyllis was member #417 of
Gesher Galicia. She was a 100% Galitzianer. Anyone who came in contact
with her was inspired by her devotion to Jewish genealogy -- not only to
research but to helping others. Her lectures were always popular. One
left her presentations with excitement to go and try her suggestions on
the topic at hand. Education was truly her passion and we at Gesher
Galicia and everybody in the Jewish genealogy world is going to miss her.
We send our heartfelt condolences to the Kramer, Gumbrecht and Katz
families, to JewishGen where she was the Vice President of Education,
and to the JGS of Palm Beach where she served in an executive position.
IAJGS conferences will not be the same without her. Baruch Dayan ha'Emet.
President, Gesher Galicia
