JewishGen U.S. Research Division Launched #jgs-iajgs #usa

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt




Introducing the newly-launched JewishGen U.S. Research Division - focusing on all time periods 1654 - present!


Collaborating with JOWBR, the Memorial Plaques Database Project, the Sephardic Research Division, and the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), we want to partner with every U.S. based Jewish Genealogy Society and encourage the identification, digitization, and indexing of new projects from every city or region around the country.


Join us at the Virtual IAJGS Conference on Monday, August 10th at 2:45 pm EST for our first meeting where inaugural projects will be discussed, and your project ideas and volunteer commitment is encouraged and welcome.


It is suggested that every U.S. based Jewish Genealogy Society send a representative to this meeting and suggest a project that your volunteers can add from your city or geographic region. To identify records and potential projects, contact local Jewish historical societies or archives, synagogues, or search on and WorldCat.


I look forward to working with you to expand on JewishGen’s American records collection.
