Researching in Northeast Indiana? Upcoming Virtual Event #jgs-iajgs #announcements


Are you researching in Northeast Indiana?  The Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society would like to invite you to “Meet Your Mishpocha” at our upcoming virtual event on Sunday, October 18th at 1:00 p.m.  Door prizes include a free DNA kit!   We will offer tours of our Fort Wayne Jewish Families Database, which has grown to include over 6,000 pat and present members of the Northeast Indiana Jewish community.  Also on hand will be the director of the Indiana Jewish Historical Society with information about their archives, representatives from the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center, and the local directors of the Jewish community’s Oral History Video Project.  We’ll also offer advice on digitizing photographs and starting your family history research.


If you have any ties to Northeast Indiana, or just live nearby, we hope you’ll join us on October 18th.  More information and the link to registration can be found on our website at   And I’m happy to answer any questions.
