New: World’s oldest Jewish newspaper added to SuperSearch

We have added the world's oldest continuously-published Jewish newspaper to our online search engine, SuperSearch, with billions of historical records.

The Jewish Chronicle, popularly known as The JC, is the oldest and most influential Jewish newspaper in England.  The collection dates back to the newspaper's founding, in 1841, and contains over 200,000 newspaper pages.

The newspaper has played a central part in the development of modern Anglo-Jewry, capturing the lives and times of the Jewish community around the globe for almost two centuries. It has interviewed high-profile, leading figures through the years. The JC collection is a valuable resource for historians and genealogists alike. Anyone with Jewish roots in the United Kingdom is bound to find this collection extremely interesting, and is sure to learn more about their ancestors and the times they lived in.

The new historical newspaper records are being added to our newspaper collection, which is, to date, the world's largest collection of online historical newspapers. The collection can easily be searched by name, publication date, and keywords. Our Record Matching technology has been unleashed on these new records, so you'll automatically receive notifications about Jewish Chronicle articles that are a match to people in your family tree.

To view these records, a data subscription is required. Don't have one yet? Read more about our annual subscription which includes unlimited access to all historical records on SuperSearch and to all Record Matches.

In addition, we will soon be adding millions of historical records from a number of other Jewish organizations, such as databases from the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) and searchable death notices from the Israeli website Avelim.
