Welcome to the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Long Island (JGSLI)!
JGSLI was founded in 1985 to encourage and assist the pursuit of Jewish family history. Our goal is to bring together people interested in tracing their Jewish family roots.
We are a non-profit organization, operating through member efforts. We work to educate members and the public regarding the “how to” of finding one’s roots.Please see our full listing of programs here. JGSLI_Programs_Sept2015-June2016 (Updated June11)
