San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, Exhibitor at Family History Day

Please welcome the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society as an exhibitor at Family History Day at the California State Archives.

The San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which has been in existence for over twenty-five years.

The Society holds some sixteen meetings throughout the year in three Bay Area locations serving its 200+ membership. Speakers range from local to international and cover all topics related to genealogical research. A magazine "ZichronNote" (meaning memories) is sent by email to all members.  A library committee reviews and purchases books for placement in three dedicated Jewish libraries around the Bay Area.

A number of members are well-known at the national level for their specific expertise.  These include Steve Morse (One Step web site); Ron Arons (criminal research); and Janice Sellers (newspaper research).  The Society also has experienced members who assist with monthly "break through those brick walls" in consort with the Jewish Community Library in San Francisco on the first Sunday of most months. These members include Steve Harris (current President of the California Genealogical Society). The meetings are moderated by Society member Judy Baston, who is a director of Jewish Record Indexing-Poland.

We look forward to meeting Family History Day attendees and helping them with any enquiries they may have about their family history research.
