The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) is proud to announce that with the addition of the following new and updated databases on its website, there are now more than 1.5 million listings in our All Israel Databases (AID) from the periods of the Ottoman Empire, the British Mandate in Palestine/Eretz Israel and the State of Israel.

We want to thank the participating archives and the many volunteers who have prepared these databases. With each release we provide a variety of records to our collection.
