The Montefiore Censuses provide us with an amazing window to life in the Middle East during those years. Volunteers connected with IGRA (and the IGS before IGRA) spent years going over the census records, and transcribing and translating them in order to make them available in both Hebrew and English. The scans are kept on the Montefiore Endowment website and the index found on the IGRA website points you to their site as well.

In this webinar Rose Feldman gives you insights into how to make the most of this unique resource.
