The newsletter will appear at the start of each month and will include materials received by the 25th of the prior month. It will supplement our journal Mass-Pocha (published 3 times a year) and regular email announcements about JGSGB programs. You are invited to submit information on coming events, and your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be screened for relevance to Jewish genealogy, interest and timeliness.
