Find Jewish wed­ding records on­line

Those with Jewish kin may be in­ter­ested in a sec­tion of the United Syn­a­gogue data­base ( theus.org.uk/cat­e­gory/find-mar­riage-record), which con­tains mar­riages that oc­curred un­der the aus­pices of the Chief Rabbi from 1880 to 1901.

Nav­i­gate to the web­page above and en­ter the de­tails of the in­di­vid­ual you are re­search­ing – for ex­am­ple, Isaac Bern­stein mar­ry­ing in 1895. The great thing about th­ese records is that they of­ten con­tain more de­tails than GRO mar­riages, so could pro­vide ex­tra vi­tal clues.

Press ‘Search’ and all rel­e­vant hits will ap­pear. In this ex­am­ple there is only one op­tion for the cor­rect mar­riage – Isaac Bern­stein to Lot­tie Saul. A pre­cise date is also given – 24 Fe­bru­ary 1895 – along with the syn­a­gogue they mar­ried in (the Great Syn­a­gogue of Lon­don).

To ob­tain a copy of the mar­riage record, click on ‘or­der’ and en­ter your ad­dress de­tails. Al­though it’s free to search the in­dex, a copy of the mar­riage record will cost £15 for mem­bers of the Jewish Ge­nealog­i­cal So­ci­ety of Great Bri­tain and £20 for non-mem­bers.

Records of Bri­tish Jewish mar­riages be­tween 1880 and 1901 are avail­able
