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_Sept.2015-June2016

The Ethical Genealogist
Speaker: Judy Russell

Genealogists deal with sensitive issues all the time: how to handle family secrets, what to say about living people, crediting the work of others. Learn more about the ethical challenges of solving family history mysteries in the 21st century.

An attorney AND certified genealogist, Judy Russell – “The Legal Genealogist” – is a popular lecturer and blogger who sheds light on the often arcane and even impenetrable legal concepts and terminology that are so very important to those studying family history. Read more about her at www.legalgenealogist.com .
