Share Your Story

 Whether in person at our monthly meetings or in writing as a submission to Family Gatherings, our monthly newsletter, we'd love to hear your story.

If you'd like to submit an article or story of interest to Jewish genealogists for possible inclusion in Family Gatherings, please contact


Hitting a Brick Wall?

OR, do you want to share a breakthrough?  We're here to help.  Member volunteers with a broad range of understanding and experience are available for consultation the first 30 minutes of every JGSBC monthly meeting.  If you've had research success, please share your methodology with our group.  Your experience may help someone else!
