Jewish Genealogy, Online Resources for Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland

                                 Presented by Mike Karsen                                    from the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois

This presentation provides an overview of all online records and resources that are useful to the Jewish researcher in search of their Chicago roots. We begin with a brief history of the Jews of Chicago. It concentrates on the uniquely Jewish resources such as cemeteries, funeral homes, life in Jewish Chicago which includes online publications which are searchable. 

Almost  half of the program  covers online records that are common to all Chicago researchers including  death records, naturalization process, location/residence records, and legal documents including wills and probate files.

In addition to sharing fellowship with like-minded genealogists at the monthly meetings, members receive an informative newsletter six time a year. An additional benefit of membership is the opportunity to participate in one of our three writers' groups. The groups meet once a month on Mondays: at 10 am, 1:30 pm, and 7 pm.


We are pleased to partner with both the Glenview and Northbrook libraries. Be sure to stop by and become familiar with their genealogy resources.

If you need help getting started with your genealogy or solving a genealogical problem come to a monthly meeting and meet others willing to help you. The first Wednesday of each month, our volunteers are also at the Northbrook library from 3 to 5 pm for Drop-in Genealogy. Come to the second floor.
