New Databases on IGRA's Website #general


Elena Bazes
 

IGRA has just released new databases on its website. All of this
month's databases are entirely devoted to Tel Aviv as IGRA has
recently formalized its relationship with the Tel Aviv Municipal
Archives. We look forward now to building more databases with
materials >from the Tel Aviv Municipal Archives.

Voters List Tel Aviv Local Council Election 1922 -- Over 5,000 voters
Most of the voters listed include the following information: family
name, given name, age and address. Only adults who payed taxes were
allowed to vote. Two abbreviations were used in the addresses. By
comparing a listing for the same people in the 1922 census, it was
deciphered that the abbreviation aleph means tent and zadek ayin means
hut.

In 1925, over 21,000 voters were listed >from Tel Aviv.
