HaChayim HaYehudim Jewish Photo Library

I recently was very surprised by a website I found totally by accident. I have been entering the burial records of Bridgetown, Barbados into the Knowles Collection. Needing a break and having a few moments of free time, I put the location in my favorite search engine. What came to sight was most incredible. I was viewing some of the actual headstones.

The search had found the website This site is the home of the photo collection of Jono David. It contains as of this writing over 36,000 photographs from 81 countries on 6 continents. Included in his collection are photos on everything Jewish, it is truly a remarkable collection. I have found myself browsing the collections quite often, there is so much to take in. As he says on the website, he is truly "Documenting the Jewish World One Photograph at a Time."
All researchers looking for their Jewish ancestors should visit this site, it would be time well spent.
