The lists are not comprehensive, some of the individuals mentioned may not have been Jewish, and we may have missed others who were. Much of the material predates 1791 – the earliest date for most available Jewish Synagogue and Community Records. If you have hit a brick wall, or have some frustrating gaps in your family tree, maybe you will find a name or an address here that will help unlock the mystery.
Genealogy should be more than just a list of names on a page, we hope these tables will add some much needed “flesh” to the otherwise dry bones of your distant ancestors and encourage you, where possible, to look at the original material from which we have created these indexes and learn even more about them and the societies in which they lived.
