JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Irish Jewish Surnames Index: Pre 1901 #general
Niall Foley <niallf@...>
A list of almost 300 surnames found in Ireland in the period up to
1901 may be found at my temporary website:
http://members.tripod.com/Niallf/Surnames.htm (this URL is case
Many of the names appear to be rare in that they do not appear in the
JewishGen Family Finder. The first name listed is that of Rabbi Aaron
Sophair ("Aaron the scribe"). He was the Rabbi and marriage broker of
the Dublin Jewish Community circa 5463.
I would welcome any comments on or additions to this list by private
