New Book: Shealtiel-Charlap Family of Eastern Europe #general


Gary Mokotoff
 

The Charlap family ancestors were Royal Court Jews of Portugal: prominent rabbis, great scholars and prosperous businessmen. In this book, Andrew Charlap of Kazakhstan has diligently documented his Christian family back to circa 1650. The Jewish Charlap family is well documented with a fixed, inherited family name in Eastern Europe as early as the 17th century. Each reader must decide for himself whether or not the evidence is convincing that the author has assembled to support his hypothesis about his ancestor Parchom Charlapowicz’s connection to Eliezer ben David, who is apparently the first Jew to adopt the Charlap name.
