Jewish Genealogical Societies and Special Interest Groups

Source: International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and JewishGen


Jewish genealogical societies are organizations of persons who are tracing their family histories. These societies typically meet once a month from September to June. At these meetings, members help each other solve problems in documenting their ancestors. Because the Holocaust has had such a profound affect on contemporary Jewish families, many members of these societies have expertise in Holocaust research.

Genealogical special interest groups (SIGs) are organized by geographic area of ancestry. Members are located throughout the world; consequently, regular meetings are not held, and the principal method of communication is their publications or the Internet. Members of these SIGs have expertise in Holocaust research for the particular region.

Both Jewish genealogical societies and SIGs have presences on the Internet. A list of
Jewish genealogical societies as well as Special Interest Groups are located at the JewishGen Web site.
