Education is one of the prime benefits of being a member of the Society and comes in a number of forms. Once you are a JGSGB member, you will gain access to our Special Interest Groups, Regional Groups, education Events, Mentoring scheme, visits to places of interest and to our very extensive genealogy Library.
The Society has an active Lead Member on Education who maintains a high level of interest in family history. The Education Lead is always on the look out for volunteers with exciting ideas for educational activities and who are willing to help deliver educational events for members. JGSGB runs monthly education event for members and also delivers presentations to other genealogy organisations, by request.
The Society has a number of reasonably priced publications which have been produced in the past to help genealogists find the resources available to them. These may be ordered by completing the order form which appears in the publications section of our web-site
FAMILY HISTORY PROJECTS FOR CHILDREN
The Society's policy includes the encouragement of family history research amongst young people. Family History Projects have been introduced into Jewish Schools, Chedarim and Youth Organisations. The Bar and Bat Mitzvah Programme of the United Synagogue Agency for Jewish Education has a family history option for boys studying for their Bar Mitzvah and for girls studying for their Bat Mitzvah. This was designed, and is supplied and run under the auspices of JGSGB. Please contact us for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Society maintains the view that if the subject of family history is introduced into as many Youth Organisations as possible, it would be both secured, well documented and an invaluable heritage for future Jewish generations.
Experienced JGSGB Members are encouraged to help less experienced and new members get started and make progress with their genealogical research through our Mentoring Scheme. Members seeking a mentor are matched with one of our volunteer mentors and are introduced to each other by the Education and Mentoring lead who can be contacted at email@example.com.
