Additional Galician programming continues throughout the week. If you can only spare one day, this is the day for Galitzianers to attend. • “Galicia Basics: What Every Galitzianer Needs to Know” - Speakers: Shelley Kellerman Pollero and Renee Stern Steinig • Gesher Galicia Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting • Gesher Galicia Luncheon -“Learning the ABC in Galicia” - Speaker: Andrew Zalewski As a Jewish genealogist, you may have wondered how our ancestors learned their ABC. Was it only in Yiddish and Hebrew or also in German and Polish? Arguments about secular education stirred passions in the entire Ashkenazi world (from Germany through Bohemia and Poland to Italy). Andrew Zalewski, Gesher Galicia Board Member and editor of The Galitzianer journal, is author of two books about the people of Galicia. His latest, Galician Portraits: In Search of Jewish Roots, is anchored in Austrian Galicia, the land of his ancestors. Large cities, small towns, and tiny villages are the backdrop for the tales, where people from a variety of ethnic groups live alongside a vibrant community of Israelites. • “The Story of Galicia: Vital Records, Maps, Censuses and Much More” - Speaker Andrew Zalewski Andrew Zalewski will examine the rich historical background of the Jewish communities that once lived in the region. He will consider a range of archival records, useful for both beginners and those with advanced experience in family history research, including vital records, maps, and other surprising resources less often used by genealogists. TUESDAY, JULY 25 • “Tabula Registers: An Untapped Genealogical Resource in the Lviv Archives (Ukraine)” - Speakers: Alexander Dunai and Natalie Dunai • “Archival Resources in Poland - Where To Begin?
