Donating Records


The Ottawa Jewish Archives accepts by donation the records of Jewish individuals or families who live (or have lived) in Ottawa and Jewish businesses, organizations or associations that have operated in the city. Donating your original records ensures that they will be preserved and made accessible to future generations of researchers.
