Specialist and Local/Regional Groups
If you are already a member you will most likely have attended meetings of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Regional Groups (RGs) where you know they are always happy to see new faces. These meetings are free to members with a nominal charge to visitors offset against membership if you join at the meeting.
If you are not already a member and have accessed this website then you are already displaying an interest in family history, so what are you waiting for?
At the meetings we generally have a speaker or hold one of our very popular workshops where bricks walls are often broken down. It has been known for attendees to find others researching the same family name or ancestral town, or even for long lost cousins to be reunited.
After a recent Dutch & Sephardi SIG meeting, this is what one attendee posted on the JGSGB Facebook Group Page:
"great meeting yesterday of jsgbs- dutch and sephardi group -we shared many wonderful stories -many of which should be televised -they are so moving-it is a year since I joined society best decision ever-worth every penny and a great 2 way commitment- learn and teach-mutual help"
