The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay (JGSTB), founded in 1999 by a group of interested individuals in the greater Tampa Bay area, brings together those who have an interest in learning how to research their Jewish family roots.
Our mission is very simple. We're here to help YOU accurately identify and document members of your family.
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

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.
