Smikha in Palestine #rabbinic

malkajef <malkajef@...>

What was the procedure for obtaining a rabbinical smikha in Tiberias
and Sfad during the period 1895 to 1901? Were there several
institutions that granted it? Were records kept somewhere? Where?

My gradfather who became a Sephardic rabbi there during that period
told a story of being "examined by 3 Ashkenazi rabbis" when he
obtained his smikha. I am trying to locate records of his
"ordination," if that is the correct term.

Thank you.
