The Galitzianer March Issue

The March issue of The Galitzianer is being printed and distributed this week.  I keep getting closer and closer to an on-time delivery.  I am really optimistic about June!

The star of this issue is an article about Jewish education in the city of Kraków over several centuries.  Other articles discuss Galician family lineages that include capitalists and rabbis; a recent visit to Ivano-Frankivsk, formerly known as Stanislawów, the birthplace of the author; and reflections on the possible roles and responsibilities Jewish researchers who visit their ancestral shtetlach might encounter.  There is also quite a bit of information about the new, totally redesigned Gesher Galicia Web site.

The Galitzianer is a quarterly journal that is sent to members of Gesher Galicia, a nonprofit organization focused on researching Jews and Jewish life in the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia.  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.

I'm looking for regular book and movie reviewers for The Galitzianer.  If you are interested and have some experience in writing, send me some writing samples and we can discuss.

If you wish to submit material for consideration, please contact me at janicemsj@gmail.com.  We accept submissions year-round, but the deadline for the June 2013 issue is May 15.
