Here are some of the most useful JewishGen databases:
  • The JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF) is a database of ancestral towns and surnames currently being researched by Jewish genealogists worldwide.  By using the JGFF, you can learn about others who are seeking ancestors of the same surname or town of origin.

  • The Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP) is a cooperative project among JewishGen, Inc., the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and the Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora (Beit Hatefutsot). The central purpose of the FTJP is to enhance Jews’ ability to connect and re-connect their families and to increase interest in Jewish genealogy. JewishGen offers a freely searchable database on this website.
  • JewishGen's Holocaust Database is a collection of databases containing information about Holocaust victims and survivors.  Most of Ilza's Jews who died in the Holocaust were transported to Treblinka on October 22, 1942, where they were killed immediately.  No records were maintained of such deportations or exterminations.  The JewishGen Holocaust Database contains records of a small number of records for Ilza residents who were interred in labor or concentration camps, whose deaths were recorded, or who survived the war.

  • The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) is a database of names and other identifying information from cemeteries and burial records worldwide, from the earliest records to the present. If you search Ilza in JOWBR, you will find a long list of burials in the Drildzer Society of Toronto's burial plot at the Dawes Road Cemetery in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. 

  • Launched in early 1995, the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland)  is the award-winning database of Jewish records of Poland.  It is the largest fully searchable database of indices to Jewish vital records (births, deaths, mariages) accessible online.  More than 3.5 million records from 500 Polish towns are now indexed.  Click here to find general information about available Ilza records.   You can search the JRI-Poland database for individual records of your family.
