“The IGRA Collection - The Accessible Database of Genealogical Research Documents in Israel”

Israel Genealogy Research Association - Speaker  Rose Feldman
The lecture will be in Hebrew
Wednesday, February 5, 2020

One of the goals of the Israel Genealogical Research Association (IGRA) is to make available certificates and documents about people who lived in Eretz Israel since the 19th century. We have collected scans of documents and certificates from many
archives in Israel and abroad. In the association's database you can search for
a requested name, in one search covering all the documents. Our database, as of
today, has over a million and a half lines. The bulk of the collection is from
the British Mandate period. The lecture will show the variety of the database
and will specify the sources of the certificates and documents.
 
Rose Feldman is
responsible for coordinating and developing new databases for the Israel
Genealogical Research Association (IGRA). Rose lectured at 9 international
conferences of the IAJGS International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies and in Israel in courses and seminars. At the IAJGS International
Conference in 2017, she was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award, and the
IAJGS International Conference. In 2014, Rose Feldman, along with Billie Stein
and the late Mathilde Tagger received an award for the Digitization Project of
Montefiore Censuses.
