What’s New at Gesher Galicia? – hybrid
October 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Presenter: Steven Turner
Steven Turner was already curious about Galicia as a small boy, when he spent holidays with his grandparents at a “Galitzianer” synagogue in Brooklyn. That was the start of his journey into genealogy, as he tried to prove that his family surname was never changed. He has written about this journey as a blogger for the Times of Israel and in various genealogical publications.
Steven is the founder of the Nadwórna Shtetl Research Group and is an active member of the Rohatyn and Sędziszów Małopolski Research Groups. Devoted to preserving Jewish heritage and culture in the former lands of Galicia, he has partnered with the ESJF European Cemeteries Initiative to clean and fence the Nadworna Jewish Cemetery.
He is a member of the board of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island and a member of the JGS of NY.
