Welcome to the JGS of Greater Kansas City

         Welcome to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Kansas City (JGSGKC)

Our goal is to help you research your Jewish ancestors and ancestral homes. We will help you learn about current methods, technologies, and resources that can help you find records, disseminate your research and preserve your Jewish family histories.

We are all volunteers, governed by a Board of Directors according to a set of published Bylaws. The IRS has granted us 501(c)(3) status as a nonprofit charitable organization, so donations to us are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We soon will be a member of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS)

We hold monthly program meetings (except for July and August) and monthly Board meetings. We provide help to all levels of researchers, from beginning to advanced. You don’t have to be Jewish to join with us. We are open to all researchers who have an interest in Jewish genealogy and who support our goals.

Our Facebook page is at; Or, go to and type Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Kansas City. Our blogsite is at We post announcements on both. Both sites also have links to PayPal where you can fill out a Membership application and pay membership dues.

Annual membership dues are $25 for individuals, $35 for a household (more than one member), $50 for sustaining members, and $10 for student members under age 25. Complimentary memberships are available if the dues impose a financial burden. Attendance at our monthly program meetings is free to members in good standing. Non-member guests always are welcome, but we ask for a $5 donation at the door to help defray costs. All dues and donations help us pay for our website, library books, outside speakers, and other administrative expenses.

Membership dues and donations may be paid by check, cash, credit card, or PayPal. PayPal also accepts credit cards. Links on our blogsite and Facebook page take you to our Membership Application which has a direct connection to PayPal. We ask all new members to complete the Membership Application. When our website becomes operational we will have similar facilities on it.
If you have any questions, please contact  Richard Rosenstock ( We hope you will join us as we bring Jewish genealogy back to the Greater Kansas City area.
