The Hurrier I Go, the Behinder I Get

Once you get behind on your schedule, it just gets harder and harder to catch up.  I thought I was making headway with the schedule of The Galitzianer, but then a column was late, and people I needed feedback from were at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (in Paris!! and I wasn't there), and some of my co-volunteers were busy with their real lives, and thus things have slipped again.  So the June 2012 issue of The G should be mailed this week to Gesher Galicia members.  Articles in this issue include a transcription of birth records records from Nowy Zmigrod, Poland; memories of being in Lwów during World War II; the discovery of tombstones and human remains in Rohatyn, Ukraine; and an Australian woman's family history research trip through Galicia.

The Galitzianer is sent 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.

Articles are accepted from both members and nonmembers.  If you submit an article that is published, you will receive a copy of the issue with your article even if you are not a member.  Submissions may be articles and/or graphics, both original and previously published, and must be relevant to Galician Jewish genealogical research:  articles about recent trips to Galicia, reports on your own research, historical and recent pictures relevant to these matters, etc.  Electronic submissions are preferred, though not required.

If you wish to submit material for consideration, please contact me at  We accept submissions year-round, but the deadline for the September 2012 issue is August 31.
