The Jeff Malka Sephardic Collection

Sephardic Surnames in the Ottoman Empire


The data was extracted by Lea Haber Gedalia from the book: The Spaniard Jews in the Ottoman Empire
Chapters in their Material Culture (Israel Museum, Jerusalem. 1989). 


We acknowledge the tremendous contributions and lifelong dedication of Mathilde Tagger, z"l. For many years, and right until her untimely death, Mathilde Tagger was a very close friend and collaborator with Jeff Malka. Together they worked to promote Sephardic genealogy research and educate the public about its enormous potential.

In addition, we express our grateful appreciation to Dr. Jeff Malka for his monumental ongoing effort to collect and make accessible Sephardic genealogical information, and for his generosity in contributing his extraordinarily valuable collection to JewishGen.
