The Jeff Malka Sephardic Collection
Amsterdam Personal Files
Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
Among the very rich collection of the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People was found a microfilm containing a list of 198 personal files from the Amsterdam Spanish and Portuguese community, dating most of the them from the 18th. While some date from the 17th century and others from the beginning of the 19th century.
The present index includes the surnames, given names, the period concerned and the microfilm call number. Many references have been added, dealing with spouses' names (when available) as well as alias names.
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.
