Galician & Polish Research Online! Methods, Techniques and Resources

We will show a video of Pamela Weisberger’s lecture from the 2015 IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem:

Galician & Polish Research Online! Methods, Techniques and Resources

This lecture will demonstrate Internet resources, websites and search engines for conducting Polish, Galician and Austrian Empire genealogical and historical research. Covered will be Gesher Galicia’s databases, including The All Galicia Database, the Cadastral Map Room and Galician Archival Records Project inventories, along with resources like GenTeam, Mapire and Genealogy Indexer. Techniques for successful database searching, expanding Google’s reach, foreign language searches, document analysis and translation options will be covered. Also learn how to access Austrian and Polish online libraries, cemetery databases and international historical newspaper websites. The use of maps in genealogical research will also be explored. (A working knowledge of how to use a computer and basic computer commands is essential.)
