Hester,

Looks like good research tips at:

https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Suriname_Jewish_Records
"Records at the Family History Library

The birth, marriage and death records of the Portuguese and German Jewish Congregations are available on microfilm through the Family History Library. Many of these records are three generational as the mother's father's name is given.

Authors Aviva Ben-Ur and Rachel Frankel, have compiled the epitaphs from the headstones of the Jewish people, in theor book Remnant Stones; The Jewish Cemeteries of Suriname."

"
The records of many Jews of Suriname have now been indexed and added to the Knowles Collection. These records are linked as families and available free of charged to be searched. Records are constantly added. "

Also, if you Google the words Jews Suriname you will find many websites discussing the history.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
