Jewish Community of Curacao
Introduction by: Genie Milgrom

Background

There is a lot to unpack in the information in the book Precious Stones of Curacao and the  Spanish Portuguese Community of Curacao. I have tried to include many of the families but have focused on the graves and inscriptions. Each person is described in detail but there is a lot of conjecture as to how they may or may not be related to the Amsterdam or Brazilian Jews. There is an incredible amount of genealogical information that is mentioned from Amsterdam, Antwerp , and other communities and that is very important but the relationship to the person that was later in Curacao is not clear or not proven. I have tried to stay on fact.

Comunidad Judía de Curazao

Por Genie Milgrom

Hay mucha  información en el  libro Precious Stones of Curacao  y la Comunidad Portuguesa Española de Curazao. He tratado de incluir a muchas de las familias, pero me he concentrado en las tumbas y las inscripciones. Cada persona se describe en detalle, pero hay una gran cantidad de conjeturas en cuanto a cómo pueden o no estar relacionados con los judíos de Amsterdam o Brasil. Hay una increíble cantidad de información genealógica que se menciona desde Amsterdam, Amberes, y otras comunidades y que es muy importante, pero la relación con la persona que salio y vivio en Curazao no está clara o no está probada. He tratado de mantenerme solo con informacion segura.
