About Us

Jewish Genealogy News was set up to fill a need in the Jewish genealogy world for a free central news service for all things related to Jewish genealogy. This includes news of upcoming events, announcements of news books and articles, new blogs, new web resources, etc.

All news is posted through the Google Group, and once approved is also distributed automatically to our Twitter feed and Facebook page.

As part of the commitment to remaining a free service, Jewish Genealogy News is completely volunteer-run. Part of the reason the site is almost exclusively run on Google services is that we do not want to run up bills that would cause us to request funds to operate the service. We are committed to keeping this service free, even to the extent that some functions might not be as sophisticated as we would like.

We hope you find this service useful, and welcome any suggestions for improvements or additions to what we currently offer here. You can e-mail us at jewishgnews@gmail.com with any suggestions or comments.
