Since its inception in February 1992 the Society has evolved as an internationally acclaimed Jewish Genealogical Society.  It owes much of its development to those individuals who over the years have made, and continue to make, major contributions to its success.

Whilst JGSGB is run by a small team of hardworking volunteers, we would be grateful for any donations towards our running costs. These costs include buying books and technical equipment for the library, Speakers for our Conferences and many other sundries which go towards making our Society a centre of Jewish genealogical excellence in the UK.
