Gesher Galicia is happy to announce that the Galicia Given Names Data Base
is now online on the Gesher Galicia web site at:

Professor Gerald Esterson has set up a searchable data base for Jewish given
names used in Galicia during 1795-1925, and links are made in each record to
the new local vernacular names adopted in this same time period in nine
Foreign countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Palestine,
South Africa, UK, US) to which Galician Jews migrated.

The data base includes the Hebrew, Yiddish, and local &
other-European-country secular names used in Galicia, as well as new
vernacular names used in foreign countries.

Since Galicia and Bukovina were part of Austria until WWI, this given
names database might be applicable to questions about given names
that Bukovina Jews adopted when they emigrated.
