Speaker: Margery Cohen “Genesis: An Indian Childhood – a beginning and an ending.” This is a very interesting and unusual subject and even if this is not your own particular field of research, please try to come along and support us. Other areas of research can be very interesting in their own right and having seen some of Margery's wonderful family photos, we highly recommend this talk.
Margery Cohen giving her excellent talk on the experience of Jews in India.
Discussing research issues at the Dutch & Sephardi SIG meeting
All events are participative and offer the chance to ask the questions that you need answering. Full details and the contacts for each event are available in the JGSGB Current Programme.
There is normally as small charge for non-members for ordinary meeting, which is deductable from membership fee. We look forward to welcoming new people to all of our open meetings. JGSGB conferences require a registration fee for members and non-members alike.
From our venue at the Ramada Hotel – at the entrance to the city - you’re within easy walking distance to the Light Rail (Mount Herzl/Yad VaShem, the City Center/Old City and more), the Knesset, Israel Museum, Bible Lands Museum, Hebrew University Givat Ram campus, Cinema City and other Jerusalem landmarks.
Have family in Israel? We can help arrange your family reunion.
In addition to the event’s lectures, workshops, resource center, networking opportunities and special events - many archives and repositories holding essential genealogical records will be at the conference. Many other one-of-a-kind programs will make this conference memorable.
We hope you will take advantage of this year’s Jerusalem conference to extend your stay - giving you and your family an opportunity to tour and learn about Israel.
We look forward to personally welcoming each of you!
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"
