  • Search all of JewishGen’ text files (not database files) through their Search the JewishGen website page.
  • Search JewishGen databases in one step using ancestry.com free search. If you are not a member of ancestry.com you can use the “Free” databases once you sign up as a “Guest”. There is no charge. You will not have to sign up again.

    In the search box use advanced search and choose “Jewish Collections”. Be specific for Gubernia or Belarus to limit the results.
