Jewish Genealogy  Gotoarrow.png  Schools

If your ancestor was educated in a school or university, he or she may have been recorded in matriculation or other records of that school. Some of these records have been published.

These records may contain valuable information about your ancestor such as name, age, residence, and date of enrollment or graduation. Sometimes they contain birth date and place and names of parents. Alumni records may have names of spouse and children. Many universities have published lists of students who attended their schools and when. Although school records may include only limited genealogical information, they can add much when compiling the family history.

Original records and any published versions may be at the school or university. In some areas local or state archives may have these records.

Information from school records may also be found on the Internet. For example, a searchable database containing information for Krakow (Poland) Lyceum school children from 1874 on can be accessed from the following web site under “Other Jewish Krakow documents”:
