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 general public regarding the “how to” of finding one’s roots. Please refer to our Program List Sept. 2014-June 2015

SPEAKER: John Paul Lowens
“New (and Antique) Resources
for German Jewish Genealogy”
After researching his German Jewish ancestors
for nearly 60 years, John Lowens is still learning
much about them. As the Loewenstein
family historian since high school, John has inherited
fascinating collections of archival photos
and documents. He is currently scanning
hundreds of World War I era photo postcards
written to his grandparents. With the help of
JewishGen, these letters from the past are being
translated and interpreted. John will share
some of these photocards, which tell fascinating
and sometimes tragic stories of middle
class Jewish life and death in western Germany,
and continue to expand and illustrate a
long family history. John will also speak about
new indexing projects, initiatives at the Leo
Baeck Institute, and other resources that have
made the civil and Holocaust records from
Germany far more accessible in recent years.
