During my last visit to London I had the opportunity to visit the London
Metropolitan Archives to query the Poor Jews Temporary Shelter original

In the reception office I was given a leaflet with some other Jewish-
interest records which are hold in the LMA. The LMA are located in
40 Northampton Road, London ECR1 0HB, 5 minutes walk >from Farringdon
Station, and very close to the Family Records Centre.

I will reproduce this list below. Please consider the following:

- I don't know what these collections are. If someone does, please post a
follow-up to this posting. Please don't ask me.

- Most of these collections are private, and *written* permission of the
depositor is required before they can consulted. Without this permission
LMA won't allow access to the records.

- The list I have do mention the names and/or institutions to ask this
permission from. I will *not* include these details in this posting.
Should someone be interested in this information, please email me
