Jewish Genealogy Society of Southern Nevada

Jewish Genealogy Society of Southern Nevada meeting announcement, June 21 (no year given)

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Southern Nevada (JGSSN), established in 1989, is a chapter of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and “is dedicated to researching and preserving Jewish family history in the United States and throughout the world.” In its early days, JGSSN met in the library in Temple Beth Sholom, but by the late 1990s, it became inactive. In 1998 Carole Montello reorganized and revitalized the Society. It offers free monthly classes, compiles resources on its website, and connects members who help each other research family history. It also publishes News to Note, a monthly newsletter with information about classes and research materials, and a quarterly newsletter called Family Legacies. The group, which started out with six members and grew to nearly 80, is “open to all, regardless of religious background or level of experience.”
