Reading any book related to genealogy takes me into the realms of science culture and history. Sure, I studied world history, ancient and modern, in high school and college. But remembering the specifics enough regarding time and place to match those pieces up with my own family history and their movements both willful and forced, has been challenging. So I dip into learning about European history. Today’s question for me is about Galicia. And yes, my family too can be traced to Galicia, better known today as Eastern Europe. I used to mix up Galicia with the Spanish province. Now I know though, Galicia is part of my heritage.
