It is the objective of the GJH & GS to preserve the legacy of Jewish history and culture in Gombin, Poland, the town of our ancestral families. We will preserve the record of our family’s roots and genealogy so that the history of 300 years of Jewish life in Gombin will not have been destroyed by the Holocaust.
The preserved record will serve as a basis for the education of current Gombiners now living all over the world and all future generations.
The Gombin Jewish Historical & Genealogical Society (the Gombin Society) was formed in 1996 as a not-for-profit, educational organization. A registered 501(c)3 organization, the Gombin Society is committed to obtaining and disseminating relevant materials, encouraging research, and preserving the documents and relics of the culture and history of the Gombin Jews. It also seeks to perpetuate the worldwide community of the descendants of Jewish Gombin and to instill in the younger generations a sense of community and shared history. Participation and membership is open to anyone with an interest in the history, genealogy and continuity of the Gombin Jewish community.
This site contains information about our current and past projects, our various publications, and other historical and genealogical documents of interest to Gombin descendants.
