Get Information on Families, Genealogical Trees, Migration Routes, and Life Stories.

The genealogical database contains information pertaining to more than 30,000 Jews in Vorarlberg, Tyrol, and Liechtenstein, from 1617 into the 21th century, as well as to their descendants and family members. You are invited to search for families, genealogical trees, migration routes, and life stories.
For privacy reasons, data about living persons cannot be shared. However, the database is being updated on an ongoing basis, and the information is saved for the future.
For the past 25 years, systematic biographical research into Jewish communities in Tyrol and Vorarlberg—whose center had long been the Jewish Community Hohenems—has been conducted in Hohenems and at the Institute of Contemporary History at the University of Innsbruck.
Especially since the late 1990s, the Jewish Museum and the descendants of Hohenems Jews keep exchanging information regarding families living in the “Hohenems Diaspora.”
The database Hohenems Genealogy  is continuously expanding and provides representations of genealogical relationships as well as numerous biographies and extensive data pertaining to migration as well as social history, photographs, and documents.
