Re: UK registration of Jewish births #unitedkingdom


Further to Harvey's suggestions, it maybe worthwhile to explore variations of Sapiere.  Freebmd ( has a very good free search of English birth indexes with very flexible wild card options.  For these early births, Freebmd does not give mother's maiden name but you can feed the information into the General Register Office (GRO) birth record search ( which does give mother's maiden name.  If you find a birth record on GRO you can order a pdf copy (for a fee).

The following births look promising Harris SAPIERE 1884 Leeds, Betsey SAPIERE 1886 Huddersfield, Jacob Wolf SAPPERI 1890 Leeds, Leah SAPPERI 1892 Leeds, Rachel SAPERIA 1894 Leeds.

I believe I have also found the family on Ancestry in the 1891 census under the name Saperia (transcribed by Ancestry as Saperid)
