On behalf of the IAJGS Board and our current membership, it is with great
pleasure that we welcome the Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida
as the newest member of our growing family of IAJGS organizations. For more

The group meets monthly in the Auditorium at River Garden Senior Services,
11401 Old St. Augustine Road, Jacksonville, Florida. Some of the groups'
upcoming meetings will include discussions of the first Jewish families in
Jacksonville and the possibility that that some of the early settlers in
1565 St. Augustine were conversos. Additionally, later this summer they plan
to screen some documentary films with Jewish genealogy content.
The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) was
formed in 1988 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. IAJGS is an umbrella
group of organizations which provides a common voice for issues of
significance to its members, to advocate for and educate about our
genealogical avocation, and to coordinate items such as the annual
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. For more information on
IAJGS, please see our website at http://www.iajgs.org/blog/ or contact me at
