On behalf of the IAJGS Board and our current membership, it is with great pleasure that we welcome the Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida as the newest member of our growing family of IAJGS organizations. For more information about the Jacksonville, Florida society, please see their website at https://jgsofneflorida.wordpress.com/ or their Facebook group “Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida” (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1711798505498114/)
The group meets monthly in the Auditorium at River Garden Senior Services, 11401 Old St. Augustine Road, Jacksonville, Florida. Some of the groups’ upcoming meetings will include discussions of the first Jewish families in Jacksonville and the possibility that that some of the early settlers in 1565 St. Augustine were conversos. Additionally, later this summer they plan to screen some documentary films with Jewish genealogy content.
