Most are unaware that some of the greatest ancestry data archives are in Israel. Israeli archives and internet sites have amassed important collections of historical and contemporary information about Jews from around the world, including Poland, Russia, Spain and China. Recent advances in finding aids have facilitated access to this data and made it easier to find Israeli relatives.
