Branches activities include lectures and other activities throughout the nation which are open to the entire membership.  
IGS members have created a variety of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to concentrate and share genealogical resources and methods of research for regions of origin including Israeli, German and Austrian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Polish, Latvian and Sephardic ancestry. 
 In addition to the Society's libraries, resources and support system, The Israel Genealogical Society is available to host a member's personal family homepage, as well as to acquaint the public with books published by members.
