Welcome to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay!

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay (JGSTB) was founded in 1999 by a group of interested individuals in the greater Tampa Bay area to bring together those who had an interest in learning how to research their Jewish family roots.

We are a member society of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, an umbrella group of more than 70 organizations representing more than 9,000 members worldwide. We are a non-profit 501(3)(c) educational organization under the Internal Revenue Code.

Our activities include the following:
  • Facilitating exchange of research information

  • Encouraging and coordinating research activities

  • Educating members to help themselves and others

  • Acquiring and organizing research materials

  • Arranging genealogical programs and meetings

  • Arranging genealogical tours

We meet once a month (excluding July and August) at the offices of Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services in Clearwater. Please feel free to join us at our next meeting to learn more about our society.
