IGRA Free Webinar “Immigration Documents to Eretz Israel” #israel #events

Elena Bazes

Join the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) for our upcoming free webinar in Hebrew in honor of Aliyah Day The Variety of Documents Where You Find Information on Immigration to Eretz Israel” by Rose Feldman. The webinar will be broadcast on October 10th at   7 pm Israel Time, 12 pm ET.

 Advance Registration Required:


As more documents are opened to the public from various archives, we are able to document when and where our ancestors made Aliyah to Eretz Israel.  Sometimes these are lists of those landing in Eretz Israel, sometimes they are lists of those leaving a port or town on their way to Eretz Israel and sometimes the information is a document not connected to immigration at all. The IGRA All Israel Database collection contains such documents from the 19th century up through the founding of Israel in 1948. The webinar will be a survey of these documents, which will hopefully give you ideas of where to continue you research if you haven’t found the documents in the IGRA collection.

Rose Feldman is in charge of developing new databases for Israel Genealogy Research Association [IGRA]. She has lectured at ten IAJGS conferences starting in 2003, at various annual seminars and branch meetings of IGRA and IGS, at the Israeli Association for Archives and Information workshop, and the genealogy workshop of the Central Zionist Archives. In 2017 she was the recipient of IAJGS Award for Volunteer of the Year. Rose was one of the three coordinators of the Montefiore Censuses Project.

Perhaps a similar talk could be held in English. I am trying to trace an aunt who emigrated from Vienna in March 1933.

I would also value a webinar in English, as I am trying to trace relatives from my mother's birth family (she was adopted) who may have emigrated from Vienna to Israel in 1927.
