JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Sources for Jewish History in Porto, Portugal #general

Jim Bennett

After having learned that I am a descendant of "Rabbi Jechiel HaLevi of Porto"
born about 1455, I tried finding publications about the Jews of Porto before the
expulsion. {This is my first venture into Iberian Sephardic Jewish genealogy, and
so far I have found nothing.]

So I now turn to you thousands of Jewishgeners to help me find genealogies,
lists, archival sources, books, etc about the Jews of Porto, pre 1500.

Please write to me and send me links to the sources, especially documents and
lists of members of the Porto community. Rabbi Jechiel/Yechiel must have been
their Rabbi at the time.

Thanks, Jim Bennett, Haifa
