Israel Telephone Directory English Front-End

IsraelPB.com offers an English interface for searching phone numbers in Israel. It does not limit the number of results, unlike Bezeq's site, and supposedly includes more numbers and has better transliteration.

Re: Gawryluk family

Search by arbitrary date range

You can now restrict results to an arbitrary date range by putting the range in {} after your search term(s). For example, kalter {1903-1923} will restrict results to sources dated 1903-1923 and satisfying any other restrictions you have imposed (e.g., only within Poland). This feature was requested...

Re: Gawryluk family

Unfortunately, the directories currently on this site have very poor coverage of Volhynia, and I would not expect to find any entries for this village. In the future, I hope to add directories with greater coverage of parts of present-day Ukraine that were not in Galicia (if anyone has such director...

Re: 1936 Polish Bank Accounts PKO

justin_ruch1180, I do not know whether the information in this directory can be used to reclaim assets, either by itself or together with other documentation. I am not aware of anyone having investigated this question.

1940 Latvia Telephone Directory

Since the 1940 Latvia Telephone Directory provided by Yad Vashem is organized by locality, if you are only interested in a few small places, you might prefer to manually search those places' entries, rather than rely on the full-text search across the entire directory, which is not 100% accurate (du...
