Welcome to the AJGS (Vic)

We are a group of people from a variety of backgrounds with a common interest in exploring our Jewish ancestry.

Some of us are not Jewish but we are fascinated to learn about the life and times of some of our Jewish forbears.

Some of us have struggled for years trying to do our own research without help – when we joined the AJGS (Vic) it made all the difference.

We enjoy attending the monthly meetings, hands-on workshop and presentations. Some of us have even discovered others in the room with a common ancestry. That’s exciting!
Most of us have joined Jewish genealogical discussion groups on the net and a whole new world has been opened for us.
So what about you? We are waiting to welcome you.

WE HAVE TAKEN DNA TESTS – OUR AMAZING STORIES

Sunday 14 November 2021 2.30pm

by

Co-presentation by Allan Jankie and Bernie Kuran

 

Allan Jankie, President of the Australian Jewish Genealogical Society (Vic)
Allan finally ‘bit the bullet’ in December 2020 and took an Ancestry DNA Test – the results arrived 3 months later.
What they revealed was something he never imagined.

Bernie Kuran, a Committee member of the Australian Jewish Genealogical Society (Vic).
Bernie took a DNA Test back in 2015. While hoping to discover any lost branches of his family that survived the Holocaust, Bernie soon learnt that sometimes you don’t know everything about your ancestors.
