Origins of the Sephardic Mendoza family - Sunday Meeting #sephardic


The Mendoza family of London is believed to be the largest in the Western
Sephardic diaspora, with members scattered around the world. In many
respects, it is a typical example of a poor Western Sephardic family. What
are the origins? What do we know and what do we not know? Using DNA and
archival records from Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and England, David
Mendoza will present a speculative history of the family from pre-history to
1750s London.

David Mendoza has a background in business-to-business market research and
developing statistical models of markets. He was (then) the youngest person
elected to a committee of the UK's Market Research Society and is a Fellow
of the Royal Geographical Society. For the last few years he has worked as a
professional genealogist. With Ton Tielen he hosts the weekly Sephardic
World talks.

The meeting is on Sunday 3 July 2022 at 11am in LA, 2pm NYC, 7pm London, 8pm
Paris/Amsterdam and 9pm Jerusalem. Patrons can join us on Zoom. The link is
