In 2011, all volumes of the Registers of Births, Marriages, and deaths of Jewish communities deposited in the National Archives were digitalized. In the course of this year they will be gradually made accessible on: www.Badatelna.eu First of all there will be volumes from the fond „ Matriky židovských náboženských obcí v českých zemích“ (HBMa)(Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths of Jewish Communities in the Czech Lands) for the publication of which the original inventory was used after some improvements.
The registers, needing substantial preservation and restoration interference, were exempt from the process of digitalization and will be scanned later. Similarly, there will be published, with delay, those volumes of the registers where errors found during checking of snaps are then corrected.
In accordance with the Register of Births, Marriages, and Deaths Act (N.301/2000 Coll.) only entries older than 100 years from the last entry in the Births Registers and 75 years from the last entry in the Marriages and Deaths Registers will be made accessible in the individual volumes of the HBMa fond. The restriction does not apply to the Jewish control registers owing to the time range of entries.
