Who We Are

JGSWS helps our members find their Jewish family roots. We hold monthly meetings with guest lecturers, and we sponsor workshops. We offer programs for beginners as well as seasoned researchers. Recent topics included immigration records, Jewish given names, forensic genealogy, genealogical research on the Internet, how to find an ancestral town, and how to create a family health portrait.
