New Issue of "The Galitzianer"

The March 2012 (!) issue of The Galitzianer is at the printer (yes, it's one of those things I have been behind on) and will be mailed next week.  Articles in this issue include a list of vital records registers that have been transferred to Warsaw and which we hope will be available soon; a summary of an article about autosomal DNA matches that looks at different degrees of cousins; reminiscences from two writers about relatives from Galicia; town research for Bolechów and Brody; and a poem about researching Galician ancestors.

The Galitzianer is available only to members of Gesher Galicia, a nonprofit organization focused on researching Jews in the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia.  If you join you receive a subscription to the journal and help fund research projects, and you help support something you enjoy.
