Updates on our building hours and events

Coronavirus Response

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, our building is closed to all visitors until further notice.

All in-person events and programs have been postponed through August 31, 2020 or converted into online offerings.

All online activities including database searching, education programs, book sales, and membership registrations are fully functional during this time.

As cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continue in our region, to help ensure the health and safety of our members, visitors, and staff, our library and Jewish Heritage Center, which originally closed on March 13, will remain closed to all visitors until further notice.

During this health crisis, the safest way to take part in our activities will be through our website at AmericanAncestors.org where we offer a huge array of records, online programs, video lectures, and many special features. We encourage your use of our website until this health crisis has subsided. During this time, our dedicated staff is working remotely, and we remain available to help you with your family history endeavors by telephone, email, and videoconference.

If you have questions about access to services, please contact our Member Services team at 1-888-296-3447 or membership@nehgs.org.

We hope that all members of the greater NEHGS | American Ancestors family will stay safe during this health crisis.

With gratitude,

Brenton Simons
President & CEO
