The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA)
http://www.genealogy.org.il announces a new version of its Beta
Search Engine for the All Israel Database (AID)
http://genealogy.org.il/aidsearch/ allowing you to search names in
Hebrew or Latin letters. All databases include the transliteration of
the names. Double names are split into separate fields. The search
engine checks all fields that are names. First and last names and the
name of the Database appear in both Hebrew and English. The rest of
the information is in the language of the database. The accompanying
scans of the documents are not attached yet to the records.
While we are in this time of transition (our new search engine is
currently being developed) we have added five new databases and have
had to temporarily remove access to three others.
The new databases:
Rehavia Address Book June 1935 - This address book was found in the
collection of the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Center. It was published by
the "Rehavia" Mutual Benefit Society Committee and was sold for 25
Eretz Israel mil. It includes people's names, addresses and
Members in Agricultural Organizations in Petah Tikvah 1931-1936 - A
list of 1,802 members in agricultural organizations during the years
1931-6. The collection of documents is >from the Oded Yarkoni Petah
Tikva History Archive .
List of Candidates for the First Knesset (Constituent Assembly) 1949 -
A list of 1,282 candidates for the 1st Knesset published in Yalkut
HaPirsumim (the official publication of the government of Israel) on
January 19, 1949.
Practical Nurses 1951-52 - A list of 169 pratical nurses, where they
studied and when they passed their exam. The list is a composite of a
number of lists published in Yalkut HaPirsumim.
List of Persons Authorized to Act as Lawyers in Civil Courts in 1956 -
A list of 1,544 authorized lawyers for the civil courts published in
Yalkut HaPirsumim on various dates in 1956.
You can now search through 41,000 entries. Many more databases will
be added in the coming weeks. Still others are being prepared.
IGRA welcomes all who can help with them.
