Dear Israel and others,

Few resources survived about the Jews of Florence
of the 17th century: The oldest are:
1) six files "Acts and Decrees" (Atti e Decreti) years 1652-1722
2) seven files "Statements" (Comparse) years 1620-1749
3) eight files (Decreti, Sentenze) years 1720-1800
These registers are sored in the collection "Nazione Israelitica" at the
National Archive of Florence (Archivio di Stato di Firenze).

For genearal information on Italian resources for Jewish
genealogy you can
visit my temporary web page (
with part of the speech I gave in Jerusalem

A neighbor of mine knows that his ancestor Salman LEVI (at least that what
assumes his surname was) moved >from Italy to Holland in about 1625, where
took the surname d'ITALIE. Family tradition has it that they lived in

Does anyone know anything about Jewish records in Firenze in the early
I understand that leading up to that time there were maybe a hundred
families in the city and I have no idea if there were more than one LEVI.
