JewishGen Family Finder Update!

Dear JewishGen Community, We are pleased to announce that the JewishGen Family Finder and JewishGen Communities Database have been updated as part of our ongoing system-wide modernization effort. In addition to creating a new platform for future growth, JewishGen users will now enjoy lightning fast search results, and the ability to employ expanded search parameters, such as fuzzy and phonetic matching.

JOWBR Update!

Dear JewishGen Community, JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database can be accessed here. If you are a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

JewishGen Update.

Dear JewishGen Community, Since the very beginning of JewishGen’s existence, we have valued free access to information, offering all of our resources at no charge. These values are fundamental to everything we do. In this regard, we are grateful that many members of the broader Jewish community have recognized the importance of our work, and have financially supported JewishGen’s efforts, permitting us to operate “in the black” for nine consecutive years.
