Library of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Oregon (JGSO) library holdings include books, periodicals, microfilm, microfiche, audio CDs and CD-Roms. It is located in a dedicated section of The Congregation Neveh Shalom Library.  Members of JGSO are able to borrow materials through the Neveh Shalom library system.  The CD-Roms and DVDs can be used on the computers in the Library or, if you are a currently member of JGSO, you may borrow them for home use.  A list of JSGO members is in the library for this purpose.   Please be aware that Congregation Neveh Shalom is temporarily without a librarian and is being staffed by volunteers.  It is recommended that you call before your visit to confirm that the library will be open.
