The Israel State Archives database contains archival material from various periods, beginning with the Ottoman period, through the British Mandate period and including the history of the State of Israel. The material in the Archives is made up of several hundred record groups and sub-groups, linked to some 4,000 series, comprising hundreds of thousands of items.
It should be kept in mind that the archival information available online and presented on the website is only part of the great treasure-trove of information kept in the Israel State Archives. The Archives will continue to update and expand the database and will eventually be able to display to users all unclassified or declassified information. To access the entire body of records available to the public, please make use of the reading room in the Israel State Archives building.
For your information: the navigation aids and much of the material available on-line are in Hebrew.
