Galizien German Descendants Newsletter

The newsletter is dedicated to family history research of the German descendants from the Austrian province of Galicia.

We welcome all to become members. You may send us your surnames and villages for inclusion in our newsletter without membership. We started in October 1994 with two members and had almost one hundred members in early April 1996. Our group shares research and assists one another with search problems. We have begun translating articles from German into English and are printing them in our newsletters.
