New and Updated Databases on IGRA Website #general

Elena Bazes

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) has just released new and
updated databases on its website.

New Databases

1) Medical Practitioners

This database, published by the Department of Health, includes a list of over
4,500 medical practitioners-doctors, pharmacists, dentists and midwives, >from
1946, who were licensed during the British Mandate in Palestine. In addition
to names, the database includes the practitioners' profession, license number
and address. The database not only lists practitioners living in Palestine
(both Jews and Arabs), but also includes British practitioners serving in
Palestine, Transjordan, Lebanon, Syria and other countries in the Middle East.

2) Ra'anana School Lists

This database lists over 3,800 students who attended school in the City of
Ra'anana >from 1938-1947.

Updated Databases

1) ATS Volunteers World War II

Over 2,000 additional names have been added to this database of volunteers
in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), the women's branch of the
British Army during World War II.

2) Marriages Certificates 1927-1948

Over 4,600 certificates have been added to this database. These certificates
were issued during the British Mandate to those requesting copies of their
certificates. The certificates include both old and new names (first and
last), nationality and address. Some include information about parents. This
is not a list of certificates issued by the Rabbinate.
