IGRA invites you to check our databases again! In this release we have added over 15,000 records! Please check out the preview of added databases. Our total amount of records is now 848,859 from close to 290 databases. Our many thanks to all of the volunteers who work on these databases.

New database: Index of Students in Grammar School in Ra’anana 1938-47. This database is from the Archive of the Ra’anana Municipality and was in ledger format. Each student is listed per year in grammar school in Ra’anana during this period. The list also includes the homeroom teacher where listed. Grades and comments are not included. Images are available to IGRA members.

Additions to existing databases:

Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) – This database is from the Central Zionist Archives. All told approximately 5,000 women in Palestine volunteered to serve in the ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) of the British Army. Information included: Birth year, date of record, address, occupation, position, education. We are adding 2,082 records to this set. There are no images available for this database.

Marriage & Divorce Certificates – We are adding here an additional 4,606 marriage certificates for the period 1927-48. These certificates are held at the Israel State Archives. These are not identical to the ledgers in the Rabanut but rather certificates issued upon request. Some certificates are for marriages that took place much earlier. Images are available to IGRA members.

Medical Practitioners, 1946 – This database contains lists of Doctors, Pharmacists, Dentists and Midwives licensed in accordance with the various ordinances regulating their professions and published by the Department of Health. The booklets were found in the National Library of Israel. Images are available to IGRA members.
