Please join us on Sunday, May 21, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., for our next program, “Jewish Life in Galicia,” presented by Suzan Wynne. Suzan Wynne will highlight the organization of the Jewish community in Galicia and the impact that self-government had on everyday life, including relations between Jews and Christians.

Suzan Wynne was the founder of Gesher Galicia, a special interest group focusing on Galician Jewry, and was also a founding member of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington. She has written two books about researching our Jewish ancestors in Galicia. The most recent book, entitled, The Galitzianers: The Jews of Galicia, 1772–1918, is a substantial revision of her earlier work, Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A Resource Guide. She recently retired from a career as a geriatric social worker and was a private genealogical researcher for 10 years. Three of her four grandparents were from Galicia, and half of her husband’s grandparents were also from that region.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.
