This series was mainly compiled by the 75th anniversary committee in preparations for the celebrations and subsequent book publication. Photographic material was gathered from congregation members pertaining to early families and events in the Kingston Jewish community. There is a good index of named individuals and subjects for searching. In addition to photographs, Interviews were conducted with various families and these recordings are also part of this series. There is a small amount of post 75th anniversary material but it is not described in as detailed a manner. The 100th anniversary is reflected in a multimedia format in a DVD set.
