- The subject database -

The JGSI Jewish Chicago Resource Portal (JCRP) is a searchable database that spans many Jewish Chicago sources. JCRP helps genealogists research their family history by subject - from "Anshes and Archives" to "Yeshivas and Yizkor Books" - by combining our historical records with public resources on Chicago's Jewish history.

JGSI is proud to offer free access to both members and non-members. This database is the result of many volunteer hours. New information is added over time, so please check back.


For additional information, see the links below.

(Note: Links may open in a new browser window or tab.)

JGSI's subject database, JCRP, along with JJCD (our name database containing over 120,000 names of Jews who lived in Chicago), makes a great first place to look as you pursue your family history.

Types of Collections:

We are always interested in new sources of information. If you wish to share any materials you found useful in your research, please contact us at jcrp@jgsi.org.
