At some point, someone in the family may ask, "Who are we?" or "Where are we from?" or "What was life like for our ancestors?"

Perhaps it is time to begin to construct your family tree.

Perhaps you would like to find living cousins who have the same ancestor.

  • We promote an interest in Jewish genealogy;
  • We instruct members in research and methodology;
  • We provide opportunities to share Jewish genealogical information.

You can also sign-up for membership here on our website and find a few links to area research resources.
