  NEW REPOSITORIES ADDED TO THE DATABASE




Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
Hebrew University, Jerusalem


The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) has microfilmed extensive collections from about 15 archives in Poland and several more in Austria and the former Soviet Union, which represent a small portion of the holdings in the countries where they worked. From the CAHJP collection, database entries on this website represent more than 1,000 towns and villages in present-day Poland, Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania. The time period covers the 14th century to the 20th century. These documents were created primarily by the non-Jewish authorities under whose rule the Jews lived. The database entries usually show the original source of the material (for example: an entry for tax lists for the town of Augustow will show the source as: MICROFILM; ORIGINAL SOURCE: AGAD, WARSZAWA, SSKP.

Database entries from this collection are being added to this website continually. Therefore, it is suggested that you check this website from time to time.
