Another new ICARUS member that we are proud to welcome:
The Gesher Galicia, Inc in Santa Monica, California
Here is a short intro on their activities from their website:
“Gesher Galicia is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that promotes and conducts Jewish genealogical and historical research for Galicia, a province of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, which is today part of eastern Poland and southwestern Ukraine. Our major research initiative — The Galician Archival Records Project — is acquiring and indexing a variety of metrical, property, school, voter, tax and magnate records for Galicia. Although our organization’s primary focus is researching Jewish roots in Galicia, the diverse community records in our databases contain names that span all the ethnic and religious groups that once lived in this region.”
