This web site serves Jewish genealogists with roots in Bavarian Swabia and affiliates as a collective data repository. Our aim is to make historical civil records and other relevant archival material digitally accessible on the internet.

Our fully searchable jgbs database provides access to tens of thousands of 19th century civil records for the Jewish inhabitants of towns and villages in Bavarian Swabia. To date, we have published most available records. The database summary gives you an overview of what records are currently available, which records are still being worked on or are not yet in our hands.

You may want to start by reading the 'How to search' page.

The database is freely searchable and the original records, where available, are accessible by anybody..
