MISSION: TO ENCOURAGE AND ASSIST THOSE WITH JEWISH ANCESTRY TO RESEARCH THEIR FAMILY HISTORIES
The Australian Jewish Genealogical Society, Inc. represents researchers living in the New South Wales, Tasmania, Northern Territory and Queensland. We work with similar societies in Victoria, the ACT and Western Australia to fulfil our mission.
BECOME A MEMBER
By becoming a member of the AJGS you gain access to expertise and resources to help advance your research.
The AJGS library holds many large reference books and hard to find publications, as well as periodicals from other Genealogical societies.
Members can attend our regular Sunday or Monday workshops to access subscription websites or get some help to break through brick walls.
ADVANCE YOUR RESEARCH
Do you think you may have Jewish ancestors?
Is there a Solomon, a Cohen or a Rabinowitz in your family tree?
Do you have stories of unfamiliar rituals or mysterious languages?
AJGS welcomes everyone who thinks they may have a Jewish connection in their ancestry. We can help you discover your Jewish roots and understand the stories behind your ancestors journeys. Learn the historical context of your thread in this rich cultural tapestry.
ATTEND WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
AJGS conducts regular workshops designed to help members research their Jewish ancestry and provide access to hard to find resources and practical help. We also run regular events covering subjects of interest to our members including conservation, members stories and specific areas of research.
