Records of the former Jewish communities of the entire Czech Republic are located at the National Archives in Prague. This priceless collection contains more than 3,000 volumes of Jewish birth, marriage, and death registers that cover Bohemia, Moravia, and the Czech part of Silesia for the period 1784-1949.
According to PhDr. Eva Drašarová, director of the Prague National Archive, the entire Jewish collection is currently being digitized. Since May 2012 part of the collection is already online.
