About Us

We are a group of volunteers, promoting Jewish genealogical research by creating and sharing resources.

News Brief / Details


Meetings are held in association with the Jewish Public Library. Guests are welcome at all meetings. Most meetings are held in the Federation CJA Building which also houses the Jewish Public Library, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre and the Gelber Conference Centre.

Please see our meeting schedule and location details.

Dating back to 1994, we have a Meeting Archive of over 150 presentations.

Sunday Morning Family Tree Workshops

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal offers free Sunday Morning Family Tree Workshop in conjunction with the Jewish Public Library of Montreal. Experts in the JGS of Montreal are available to answer research questions from society members and the general public on a one-on-one basis. There is no charge to attend and we have access to many databases on which we do live searching. Workshops are normally held on the first Sunday of each month from October to June (except when there are conflicts with Jewish holy days) from 10 am to noon at the Jewish Public Library.

Please see our workshop schedule and location details.

Many of the research resources used in our workshops have been incorporated into the JGS-Montreal Genealogy Dashboard to allow you to search many resources from one screen.
