Watch this Space for the new restructured SIG information for 2015.

Previously scheduled 2014 SIG meetings held at SLCL headquarters and co-sponsored by the St. Louis County Library will be held!

See the calendar below for details.


The Jewish Special Interest Group (J-SIG) of St. Louis Genealogical Society began in June 2005 as a revival of the Jewish Genealogical Society of St. Louis, formerly associated with United Hebrew Congregation. In addition to its association with the St. Louis Genealogical Society, the J-SIG is a member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.


Jewish Newsletter

During its existence, the JGS of St. Louis had a monthly newsletter called Generations. Its first editors were founders, Art and Sylvia Jaffe. Then, for a brief time, it was edited by Gene Schneider, followed by Jerry Goldberg. In late 2000, Ilene Murray began her tenure as editor and remained in that position until the last issue, July 2005.

A complete set of all of the issues is available at St. Louis County Public Library Headquarters in Special Collections and at the Missouri Historical Society Research Library.

Electronic copies of issues from November 2000 until July 2005 can be found on this site. They are in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format and can be downloaded, saved, and/or printed. To do so, click here for Jewish Genealogical Society Newsletters
