MyHeritage, an-Israel based genealogy website, will now include in its database the archives of the Jewish Chronicle and two Israeli historical databases.

In a release, the website, based in Or Yehuda in central Israel, said the London-based Chronicle’s archive included “over 200,000 pages and millions of names, and dates back to 1841.”

“Based in London with reporters located around the globe, the newspaper captured the lives and times of the Jewish people during waves of immigration from Europe to Britain during two world wars and Jewish life in England at the turn of two centuries,” the release said.

The website is also adding the Israel Genealogy Research Association and Avelim, a searchable death notice database.

MyHeritage, founded in Israel in 2003, incorporates databases from a range of countries.
