    Hello, would like to get a copy of my birth certificate, thanks

    1. You have to apply to the Ministry of Interior. The information is on the Internet. If you are living abroad the procedure may be different.

    How accurate are dates on Mandate period תעודות נשואין וגרושין. On my grandparents certificate the Date of the Document is 20 Jan 1937 and the Date of Record is 31 Aug 1923. If the data was only recorded in 1937, could the date of Record been changed, perhaps to make my grandmother appear to be older?

    I am accessing this site from Canada. I’m searching for relatives who live in Israel. Is there a family tree site or database for this?

          From the Ottoman period, there are Nufus registers which you can check. There are 20 registers from the Gaza district that survive. Originally microfilmed, and then scanned from the microfilms, the scans are available at the Israel State Archive web site. We have a guide to the Ottoman Nufus Registers on this site. Search for Gaza in the first table, find out which films the registers you want to check are one, then you can click the links to those films in the second table.
