Searching the All Galicia Database & the Gesher Galicia Map Room Online
The All Galicia Database (AGD) on the Gesher Galicia website has over 230,000 records from 79 data sources from birth, death, marriage and divorce records to directories, school, voter, tax and landowner records from the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia, which today covers eastern Poland and western Ukraine. Gesher Galicia’s digital “Cadastral Map Room” has the largest online collection of high-resolution property maps from the Austrian Empire, which show the names of the landowners and shop-owners written onto plots, fields, and in market square. Learn about our Galician Archival Records Project and how to use the AGD, in conjunction with the Cadastral Map Room and the Gesher Galicia records inventory, to find your ancestors and link to the original source documents from overseas archives. There will be a brief overview on the best approach to Galician research presenting examples of unusual 18th – 20th century records, which can enhance your knowledge about the lives of your ancestors. This lecture is sponsored by the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society with the help of the Israel Genealogy Research Association.
Pamela Weisberger will be giving the lecture to the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society at 5:30 pm EDT (11:30 pm in Israel) on Wednesday, October 30, 2013. IGRA will present the lecture as a live webinar which will be available on our website in a few weeks.
