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.

Currently, the Prague National Archive is requesting bids from outside vendors to digitize the Jewish collection.

In the meantime the archive will respond to a written request from an individual. Click here for contact information.

The collection inventory organized by town name is available on the website of the National Archive. Locality index is helpful in determining which register to order.
