Using Advanced Search

Use the advanced search to widen the search criteria and narrow the search result.

Where searches based on Family Name and/ or First name produce too many records, try combinations based on Family Name\ plus event\ plus +\- 5 years, or single year date.

Please note that not all entries contain an address or Hebrew names so we recommend you only use these if there have been over 100 results with the Basic search, and after you have tried adding a year, or a range of years.

Where searches based on Family Name\First name produce too many records, try combinations based on Family Name\ plus event\ plus single year date. Cohen + marriage + 1820 produces a handful of results, whereas with no year entered there are over 100 results.

Examples of searches not using the family or foremane field

Event = birth
Date = 1810 +\- 5
Father’s Hebrew name = Shmuel
12 matches plus one with uncertain date

Event = Marriage
Hebrew Name = Issachar
Date = 1820 +\- 5
10 matches

Address = Petticoat
Produces over 75 Results
Address = Petticoat
Event = Marriage
19 matches

Hebrew Name = Isaac
Event = Marriage
produces over 100 results

Hebrew Name = Isaac
Event = Marriage
Synagogue = GSM
produces over 100 results

Hebrew Name = Isaac
Event = Marriage
Synagogue = GSM
Year = 1835 +\- 5
40 matches

The following search criteria are especially useful for particular record sets where there are few recorded Family Names, for example:
Burial (DPL),
Marriage (NSM) (NSK)
Circumcision (BSMS)

As a general rule in these examples, it is not practical to check the +\- 5 year option box as the 100 maximum results may be exceeded. To lessen the number of results even further, include NR in the Family Name box.

Event = Burial
Synagogue = DPL
Year = 1805

Event = Marriage
Synagogue = NSM
Year = 1812
