What Are These Organizations?

SIGs are Special Interest Groups who share interests in a specific geographic region of origin or special topic, such as Galicia, Lithuania, United Kingdom, or volunteers working on records in Poland. Within JewishGen, these groups are designated as Research Districts (RD).

BOFs or Birds of a Feather groups are typically smaller groups and meet more informally concerning shared interests, such as researching a particular town, using the Genealogy Portal, being a blogger, or managing a website.

District Research Groups (DRG) are the latest addition to Jewish Genealogy groups. These focus on a particular area, city, or a JewishGen project such as DNA, Yizkor books, or being a professional genealogist.
