Gesher Galicia Luncheon Speaker and Galicia Programming at IAJGS Conference in Seattle #poland

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

GESHER GALICIA LUNCHEON SPEAKER

It is with great pleasure that Gesher Galicia announces that our
luncheon speaker at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy will be Dr Sergey Kravtsov, who will present a talk on
"Galician Jewish Families: Histories and Legends". Dr Kravtsov will
discuss how many prominent Galician Jewish families became deeply
involved in Jewish history, in local and regional culture, and how
Jewish family legends were constructed and circulated. The luncheon
will take place on Monday, August 8, at 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM. There will
be time for Q & A following the presentation.

On Tuesday, August 9 >from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM, Dr Kravtsov will present
a second talk on "Synagogues of Galicia as Cultural Heritage". From
the sixteenth century until the First World War, the construction of
synagogues in Galicia was a vibrant activity, resulting in an abundant
built heritage in a variety of types, styles and decoration. Rich in
historical and cultural significance, and in collective and personal
memories, the preservation of this heritage is a challenge to the
Galician legacy.

Dr Sergey R. Kravtsov is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for
Jewish Art, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Born in Lviv,
Ukraine, he was trained as an architect in his native city. He
received his doctoral degree in architectural history >from the
Institute for the Theory and History of Architecture in Moscow in
1993, and moved to Israel in 1994. He has published some 60 essays on
the history of urban planning and synagogue architecture. He has also
authored and co-authored five books, edited another book, and
co-produced 16 multimedia compact discs.

GESHER GALICIA LUNCHEON

The luncheon on August 8 will begin at noon and end at 1:30 pm. Entry
to this event, including to the presentation by the speaker, will not
be allowed without a luncheon ticket, as per conference policy. The

Indexing vital records from the Lviv archives, and appeal for support #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia continues to move forward with the indexing of Jewish
vital records, with a focus on those held in Fond 701 in the Central
State Historical Archives in Lviv. Recently completed transcriptions
from this fond include Jewish vital records >from Kudrynce, Lwow,
Narajow and Stary Sambor, all of which will be announced shortly.

As mentioned in an earlier posting, there are 63 towns (all but three
of them >from eastern Galicia) represented in the sets of Jewish vital
records held in the Lviv archives. Gesher Galicia has now completed
the entire vital record sets >from 26 of these towns, and has partially
indexed the records >from another dozen towns. In addition, over 90% of
the very large batch of records >from Lwow has been completed, with the
generous contribution of Eric Bloch and his indexing team.

Gesher Galicia has some 14 towns in its indexing project for the
present period. For some of these places, some of the existing record
books have already been indexed. Work is currently proceeding on vital
records >from Jezierna and Narajow, as well as the project, in memory
of Pamela Weisberger, to index all the Grzymalow vital records in the
Lviv archives, will shortly be completed.

For some towns in the current program, we already have sufficient
funds to carry out all the indexing, thanks to generous donations from
members and supporters. For others, including some larger sets of
records, we have some funds, but not enough to complete the work.
Donations towards any of these projects, would enable us to carry them
out fully, and would be much appreciated.

The following are some of the immediate projects for which we are
hoping to obtain further funding to complete a town=E2=80=99s indexing.

- Stryj: We recently completed the indexing of Jewish death records
from this town for 1864-1876. These indexes have been uploaded to the
All Galicia Database and announced. To complete the remaining Stryj
records in the Lviv archives (D 1847-1863; B 1846-1858; and M
1855-1876), another $2,500 is needed.

- Narajow: We are currently working on, and have almost completed, the
indexing of books with Jewish birth, marriage and death records for
various years between 1905 and 1936. To complete the remaining Narajow
records in the Lviv archives (birth, marriage and death records for
various years between 1839 and 1904), another $750 is needed.

- Jezierna: Indexing will be starting shortly on Jewish birth records
from 1876 to 1882. However, to complete all the records for this town
(births 1883-1893 and 1898-1922) in the Lviv archives, another $1,200
is needed.

- Zolkiew: For the remaining book of Jewish vital records for this
town in the Lviv archives, births >from 1828-1840, $450 is needed.

- Turka: For the remaining book of Jewish vital records for this town
in the Lviv archives, marriages and deaths 1920-1922 and a birth index
book >from 1926, $800 is needed.

- Rozdol: For the single book of Jewish vital records for this town in
the Lviv archives, births >from 1832-1868, $500 is needed.

Support for any of these projects, in any amount, no matter how small,
will be much appreciated to help us complete this work. The resulting
indexes will become part of the All Galicia Database, which is freely
available to all researchers. However, to receive access to a towns'
original images, once these are uploaded to the Galician Archival
Records Project (GARP) "Donors Only" area on the Gesher Galicia
website, a $100 donation per town is required.

Donations by credit card or PayPal may be made online, through the
"Donate" button at the top right-hand corner of the Gesher Galicia
home page, or directly to <http://www.geshergalicia.org/donate/>. If
making a payment in this way, please enter the amount being donated
and the name of the town in the boxes provided.

You may also pay by check, again indicating the town name and your
email address. Checks must be in US dollars, drawn on a US bank, made
payable to Gesher Galicia, Inc., and mailed to:
