Dear all,

A list covering the period 1759-1813 with the names of 448 poor
Sephardic families who were granted Sedaca (charity) against the
promise to leave Amsterdam and not to return within the next 15
years is now online at:

http://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/AmsterdamPoorSrchFrm.html

The preferred destinations were: Surinam, Curacao, St. Eustatius,
Jamaica, London, Bordeaux and Bayonne, Hamburg, Livorno and other
Sephardic communities.

The list has been found by Mrs. Vibeke Sealtiel Olsen in the
Amsterdam Municipality Archives. She deciphered and indexed it.

Shalom,

Mathilde Tagger
Jerusalem
