About us

The jewisharchive.org website is created based on a private collection of Jewish archival documents.

The materials we are offering represent a documentary chronicle of the life of the perished numerous Jewish community that had flourished in Eastern Galicia before Holocaust. The mission of this site is to contribute to the preservation of the documentary and genealogical heritage of the Jewish people as a whole.

The website aims to expand the access to a previously unknown private Jewish collection of documents through user-friendly electronic cataloging. For convenience, the collection materials are translated into English. This site can be of use to descendants who are restoring their family tree and interested in finding their roots.
