The Oded Yarkoni Archives for the History of Petah Tikva has just launched its website. It is in Hebrew and available by clicking here.
It has a special section dealing with genealogy (available here)
For those of you with roots in Petah Tikva, I hope it will help you.
In addition, The Israel Genealogical Society has made the following materials available to all researchers. The two databases were originally in Hebrew and the names have been transliterated in to English.
1. 1915 Census of Tel-Aviv
2. British Mandate Census 1922 - Petah Tikva & Tel-Aviv - Jaffa
This database is about 1/5 of the Jewish population in Eretz Israel at that time. This is all that remains of the original census to the best of our knowledge.
Special thanks to the municipal archives of Tel-Aviv - Jaffa and Petah Tikvah for making these materials available to us.
