Logo About the SFBAJGS

The San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society (SFBAJGS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development, preservation and distribution of Jewish genealogical knowledge and material, and the sharing of techniques and tools with others who may be searching their Jewish roots.

The SFBAJGS functions through the voluntary efforts of its members, all of whom are encouraged to participate. The Society is governed by a Board of Directors, according to a set of published bylaws.

The SFBAJGS is a member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS), and California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA).

The SFBAJGS does not limit its scope to the San Francisco Bay area.  While our meetings take place in various locations in the Bay Area, our research and pursuits include the entire world.  Our members have extensive experience with genealogical research in every corner of the globe and with all types of historical records.  Come join us!
