Are you a Galitzianer?
Thousands of Jewish immigrants from historic Galicia (including parts of present-day Poland and Ukraine) settled in Western Pennsylvania at the turn of the 20th century. For our first annual “Special Interest Days,” the Jewish Genealogy Society of Pittsburgh and the Rauh Jewish Archives at the Heinz History Center are celebrating these ancestors of the community.
Visit the archives for:
• a display of rare materials from local Galitzianer organizations, including Machsikei Hadas Congregation,
• one-on-one no-appointment research assistance with directors of the Jewish Genealogy Society,
• a take-home pocket guide to the historic Galitzianer community throughout Western Pennsylvania,
• a chance to connect with other local Galitzianers.
This program is possible through the generous support of the William M. Lowenstein Genealogical Research Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation.
