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.)

Exhibitions

  • Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin : Vedem Underground

    The magazine was one of the longest-running underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi prisoners. From 1942-1944, VEDEM’s teenage authors documented their harrowing existence with defiance, humor, heartbreak, and poignancy, and created an enduring example of social activism through artistic expression. Using graphics, drawings, paintings, prose, and poetry, we hear the voices of some of the era’s youngest resistance fighters who refused to give up their identity, humanity, and fighting spirit.

  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945

    This permanent exhibition presents the history of the Holocaust through artifacts and stories of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors.
