We were very saddened to learn that Pamela Weisberger, head of Gesher Galicia, passed away in Los Angeles on September 25th after a brief illness. Pamela was a leading figure in the world of Jewish genealogy and her untimely passing is a major loss for us all. She was the creative force behind the ever-innovative Gesher Galicia, a leader of the JGS of Los Angeles, co-chair of the International Conference in Los Angeles in 2010, a world-wide lecturer, and a frequent speaker at JGSGB programs. In 2013, Pamela was a major participant in the International Conference we hosted in Boston where she gave 4 lectures and led 4 other programs. She will be remembered for her creativity, energy and passion for Jewish genealogy. May her memory be for a blessing.
