The Jews of the Kingdom of Valencia

This book brings to life a comprehensive study of the Jews in the Kingdom of Valencia from the massacres of 1391 to the Expulsion in 1492. The research is based on 881 documents found in various archives and published in part here for the first time.

The author, J. Hinojosa Montalvo, is a well known Spanish historian who published dozens of articles and several books, all centered around Jews and their lives in pre-expulsion Spain.

The present index includes 180 different surnames cited from the studied archival documents. The surnames are accompanied by their given names and the year and place where they were encountered with added notes in some cases. Interesting to underline that 10% of the names in this index are related to women.

We acknowledge the tremendous contributions and lifelong dedication of Mathilde Tagger, z"l who made this index available. 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.
