Jewish Records in 15th Century Seville

Klaus Wagner (1937-2005), noted medevialist and professor at the Facultad de Filologia of the Universidad de Sevilla, published in 1978 a magnificent but little known book entitled Regesto de documentosd del Archivo de Protocolos de Sevilla referentes a judios y moros. In this publication he extracted and transcribed a number of excerpts from 15th century archival documents in Seville that mention Jews, conversos, and Moors. This extremely important and useful work is unfortunately not well known among genealogists and essentially unavailable in the United States.

In an attempt to publicize this book and render it more useful I have extracted out of the book various items to include in a searchable database. Of course, the book contains much more complete information. But, this will assist genealogists and historians searching the topic and alert them to wealth of information this book can provide. For further information the book can then be purchased from the Universidad of Sevilla.


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.
