Looking for pre-1700 records DE LA PARRA - family #sephardic


Hester de la Parra
 

Hi, my father and I are seeking your expertise in tracing our family history. Our ancestors were Sephardic Jews who came to Surinam after the Inquisition. Selemoh de Semuel de la Parra and his wife Luna de Campos (1667-1716) and their descendants lived there. We would appreciate any suggestions on finding their parents and grandparents and reconstruct their journey from Iberia to Surinam.

The father of Selemoh, Semuel de la Parra, might have been born around 1640, his grandfather could have been a Yaakov / Jahacob de la Parra, residence unknown (perhaps Amsterdam or Spain). We don’t know anything about Luna’s parents.

It would be a great assistance if you could provide any kind of information (in German, English, Dutch or French) on how to proceed? 


Kind regards,
