Is there a registry for Kohenim in Israel? #general


My great-uncle, Itzhak FRENKEL emigrated to Israel in 1935 >from Vienna. He
died in Haifa in 1974. One of my relatives told me that at shul he made
the sign that Kohanim make and that my great-uncle told him he was a Kohen.

My father thought he was a Levi, but not a Kohen. Would the Levis make
the same sign in the synagogue? Is there a registry in Israel of all
Kohenim? If so, is it accessible to the public?
