Meorie Galicia also 1922 Dr.'s Listings in Galicia #galicia


Norman Fuhrer <nfuhrer@...>
 

We sent for and received back issues of "The Galitzianer" which we noted
from the Gesher Galicia website contained the surname FUHRER.
Spring Issue -- 1994 (Vol. 1, No. 3) prints a list of Galician Rabbi's in
Rabbi Meir Wunder's Meorei Galicia (Volume IV) "Encyclopedia of Galician
Rabbis and Scholars"

Among the names listed is FIHRRER/FUHRER, which we have an interest in. The
article mentions that Volume V was to be published soon. Does anyone know
if the fifth volume was indeed published and how we can access further
information? Does this book contain biographies or a brief synopsis of each
name listed?

Also in "The Galitzianer" Vol 3, No. 2, Winter 1996, their is a 1922
listing of some doctors, lawyers and dentists in Galician Towns. We found
in this listing a Dr. Maksymillian FUHRER >from Lwow. The article states
the lists were >from a book whose Title page is printed as part of the
article, but unfortunately for those of us who are linquistically
challenged, it is all in Hebrew. Does anyone have further information, on
this book? The article was written by Larry Kahaner, and was requesting
volunteers to translate the book.

We would appreciate any assistance.

Best Wishes

In response to one of the 2 questions, Volume 5 was published in 1997. The
encyclopedia is in Hebrew. It has articles (some brief, some long) on
each name listed. For some of the Rabbis listed there are photos as well.

Wunder, Rabbi Meir. Meorei Galicia : Encyclopedia of Galician Rabbis and
Scholars. Vol. 1 - 5. Jerusalem Institute for Commemoration of Galician
Jewry. Jerusalem : 1978 - 1997.

Hi,
I own the fifth volume of Meorei Galicia, an encyclopedia of Galician
families. This volume covers surnames starting with the Hebrew Letters
"Shin" (surnames starting with S or SH ) and "Tav" (T). The author is
Rabbi Meir Wunder, of Panim Meirot 13, Jerusalem, Israel.
