Join the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) for our upcoming free webinar “Jerusalem Census – 1947”  by Rose Feldman on March 27, 2022, 7 pm Israel Time, 12 pm ET. This webinar will be in Hebrew.

The Hebrew Community Committee of Jerusalem, which was part of Knesset Israel, conducted a census of residents of Jerusalem during the months of February-July 1947. The census included about 80,000 residents from day age to 106 years. Each apartment or house has an individual card. The families’ reports indicate where they were born and how long they have been in Jerusalem and who owns the apartment. The quality of the information depends on the willingness of the people to participate in the census and whether the information was provided by the family or neighbors.

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.
