The jgstoronto.ca website was completely redeveloped in 2017. It offers a plethora of resources that can be tapped by our members to facilitate their family research. It also offers discussion groups or forums that allow Special Interest Group (SIG) members to share information as well as ask for help or suggestions in resolving their brick walls. Harvey and Ruth will review the process of registration, effective use of the Events Calendar, searching the site for resources, Forums and more.
JewishGen.org is one of the primary starting points for Jewish genealogists when first embarking on a family research journey. It is vitally important to keep referring back to this website as new resources are continually being added and improved. Neil Richler will lead this session and guide members through the essential parts of the site: e.g. data bases, such as the Jewish Online World Burial Registry, Special Interest Groups (Gesher Galicia, Litvak, etc.), yizkor books, and shtetl information.
