We also hold copies of records of all of the 17 Jewish cemeteries in Scotland, indexed on our computer database.

We have a computer database of almost 40,000 Scottish Jews. Information is constantly being added to this database, which includes information from over 70 sources such as cemetery lists, synagogue registers, charity subscription lists and census records.
