Our society has created local Special Interest Groups (SIG) similar to the international SIGs hosted on the JewishGen website. The goal is to help members of our society, who are interested in a particular region or topic, advance their research by exchanging information and sharing resources.
Details about each SIG will be determined by its members and the coordinator. Meetings can be held before or after regular JGSGB Sunday programs or at another time and place.
The Belarus Special Interest Group (SIG) is comprised of JGSGB members who wish to explore their Jewish roots in the current country of Belarus. Our objective is to enhance the research capabilities of our members by examining topics of interest in depth, providing assistance to each other, and identifying and utilizing reference sources to the fullest. If you are interested in joining the local JGSGB Belarus SIG, please contact belarus @ jgsgb.org.
