The Jewish Genealogical and Archival Society of Greater Philadelphia (JGASGP) was
initially founded in 1979 as the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Philadelphia by
a small group of individuals interested in researching their Jewish heritage. Since then,
it has grown to approximately 400 members in the greater Philadelphia area, and also
across the U.S., Canada and Israel.
