Re: Jews in Ethiopia in late 1700s #general
Have you found any records from when they lived in Ukraine? Do you know the name of the town? Perhaps on some vital record or revision list would be noted that one of the family was born in Ethiopia, or had lived there.
This page is interesting, although it doesn't really answer your question about Ashkenazi Jews living in Ethiopia.
