The Western Massachusetts Jewish Genealogical Society exists to help its members research their family history. We connect beginners with people with experience, and people with knowledge with those seeking new avenues to explore.
We hold meetings of interest to Jewish family history researchers at all levels of expertise. Our meetings offer encouragement and inspiration to those facing roadblocks in their search and feature presentations by local and national experts and members sharing experience and resources.
If you're interested in learning about Jewish genealogical research or the resources and tools that are available to help you with a research project, please join us at an upcoming meeting.
