All-UK Database (including JGSGB databases on JCR-UK)

 

The All UK Database has been contributed to the Jewish Communities and Records - United Kingdom Special Interest Group (JCR-UK) by JewishGen, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain, and individual donors.  The combined databases contain more than 390,000 records referring to individuals in the United Kingdom — England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, as well as the Republic of Ireland.  This database is a work in progress, and new entries are being added regularly.
