The Jewish Genealogical Society – Hamilton & Area (JGS – H & A) is a non-profit organization run by members for members. The Society is member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS).
We welcome anyone with an interest in exploring their Jewish roots, regardless of religious affiliation or level of experience. We offer assistance locally as well as through a vast network of sources available through the IAJGS.
Jewish Genealogy, like all genealogy, is the search for ancestors and relatives, both living and deceased. Genealogy is also the study of the culture, political conditions, lifestyles, and the history of our ancestors, as well as the shtetls and countries they lived in.
We offer encouragement, assistance, support and help to begin your search, to find the resources for locating your ancestors, to overcome the roadblocks on your path of discovery, and to celebrate your genealogical victories.
