About JGSLA

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles (JGSLA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools with those who are interested in Jewish genealogy and family history.

Founded in 1979, the Society has over 400 members and is governed by an elected Board of Directors. We hold monthly meetings providing a mix of lectures and films to assist our members in their family history research and twice-yearly research workshops with volunteer helpers and translators.
