"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage—to know who we are and where we have come from" (Alex Haley).
No one notices the hunger more than those who cannot find their ancestors because they believe the records don't exist. They do exist.
Our early pilots demonstrated the existence of Jewish records thought lost forever. In four weeks, we found 52 previously unknown collections – 116,000 lives rediscovered.
Act now – our documentary heritage is vulnerable. The 2021 fire at Kraków City Archives destroyed 20 million documents "leaving an unfillable hole in the history of the city and its people".

Our purpose is to discover and catalog an inventory of  all existing records that document Jewish lives. JCat, the world’s most comprehensive and only online catalog of its type, will be freely searchable by all.
