Front Cover of December 2016 Shemot

Shemot is the journal of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain. It is published three times a year and is sent free to members. We publish original articles, submitted by members or commissioned, on a variety of topics likely to be of interest to our readers.

As everyone knows, any reference book once published is immediately out of date, as information changes all the time. This applies to general information and to specific data. With the Internet, changes happen even more rapidly than ever before. This applies a lot to website addresses and new websites. Republishing our Jewish Ancestors? Guides every time a few websites change is not realistic, so we will be providing updated information for of our Guides on this page. We will add not only new website links but some more general information.
