What is the JGFF? The JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF) is a database of surnames and towns currently being researched by Jewish genealogists worldwide. It contains ancestral surnames and town names, and is indexed and cross-referenced by both surname and town name.
The JGFF is a networking tool, designed to connect genealogists with similar research interests. Its purpose is to allow people who are researching the same surnames and towns to discover each other, and then share information with each other. All Jewish genealogists are encouraged to participate..
