MISSION: TO ENCOURAGE AND ASSIST THOSE WITH JEWISH ANCESTRY TO RESEARCH THEIR FAMILY HISTORIES
The Australian Jewish Genealogical Society has now been incorporated into the Australian Jewish Historical Society. Our mission remains the same and we continue to work with societies in other states to assist genealogical researchers with Jewish roots.

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 anyone who thinks they have a Jewish connection in their ancestry. We can help you discover your Jewish roots and understand the stories behind your ancestors journeys.
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.
WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
With the continuing challenges of COVID19 AJGS is developing a mixed online and live workshop model. To access resources at North Shore Synagogue please email AJGS President Barbara Simon to make an appointment.
If you would like online assistance with your research please email your query and we will do our best to answer as soon as possible.
