IAJGS Membership Development Committee

The IAJGS created the IAJGS Membership Development Committee in 2011 with committee members representing the international Jewish genealogical community. The members were selected based on their skills and experience and on the size and geography of their member society. Each of the members has been assigned responsibility for a region but also helps with other areas of the World. The committee members’ JGS affiliations are listed only for identification purposes.

The purpose of the IAJGS Membership Development Committee is to identify potential new members from existing organizations, help encourage the formation of new JGSs in areas where there is a Jewish population and no existing JGS, enhance membership of existing member societies, and help struggling member societies to survive and grow.
