Henry Wellisch Celebrates 95th Birthday

Henry Wellisch, our President Emeritus turned 95 on Sept. 22nd. Henry has been a fixture at JGST for over 30 years. He was one of the first to join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Canada, as we were once known.
His tireless work as a researcher and uber genealogist is known throughout the world of Jewish genealogy.

On Nov. 22nd Henry will be delivering a lecture on methodologies for researching relatives who were caught up in the Holocaust. The lecture will take place at Temple Sinai, 210 Wilson Ave. in Toronto. At that time we will be recognizing Henry on his birthday.

Doors will open at 7:30 pm


  1. Joyce Guenette says:

    Hello Harvey
    I hope you can get some information for me about my biological family. Thank you. Joyce

  2. Joyce had phoned on the JGST line re: finding descendants of her biologic father. Her father was a furrier in the 1930s. His surname was Feldman. Any information should be private. If you might have any knowledge of a furrier or a tailor with that surname who lived in Toronto in the 1930s you can discreetly send the information to me at [email protected]. I will pass this on to Joyce.
