The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal
offers free Sunday Morning Family Tree Workshops,
during which we do live searches.
For new and even regular attendees,
the sources used for research can go by very quickly.
This workshop handout is meant to give attendees
pointers to those resources used.
All about JGS-Montreal meetings, workshops, projects, and help on
genealogical research with a focus on Jewish Montreal.
Lovell's Annual Montreal Directories (1842-2010) are online and freely accessible.
There is no search, but the directories are alphabetical and include street directories.
The Canadian Jewish Review (CJR) contains new of interest to Jewish families in Montreal and Toronto
(1921-1966), including marriage and birth annouements.
Many search features have had problems since 2016; avoid Advanced Search.
Google Newspapers has the Montreal Gazette (1878-2006),
as well as 1950s issues of the CJR
missing from the SFU site.
