The Jeff Malka Sephardic Collection
Turkish Community of Vienna
N.M.Gelber wrote an article entitled “Contribution a l’histoire des Juifs espagnols de Vienne” [Contribution to the history of Spanish Jews in Vienna] and published in Revue des Etudes Juives, 1934, 97:114-151 and 98:44-49. He listed there the first members of Vienna Turkish community that counted 126 members and their families – a total of some 360 souls – between the years 1788-1818.

We acknowledge the tremendous contributions and lifelong dedication of Mathilde Tagger, z"l who made this index available. For many years, and right until her untimely death, Mathilde Tagger was a very close friend and collaborator with Jeff Malka. Together they worked to promote Sephardic genealogy research and educate the public about its enormous potential. Mathilde compiled this information based upon the original source material: Klarsfeld, Serge. Mémorial de la Déportation des Juifs de France. Paris, 1978.
In addition, we express our grateful appreciation to Dr. Jeff Malka for his monumental ongoing effort to collect and make accessible Sephardic genealogical information, and for his generosity in contributing his extraordinarily valuable collection to JewishGen.
