records >from Galicia, surprising details about your family found in

path of your own family in Galicia, the intergenerational tensions
over education for women, and stories about Galician public schools or
the schools established by Jewish philanthropist Baron de Hirsch.

** Galician Profiles: Articles in this category could include
biographical profiles of Jewish writers, musicians, artists,
mathematicians, and political figures who were active in Galicia.
