Family overseas

This guide was last updated in 2011

You may well find a specific indication that your Sephardic ancestor in England was an immigrant.

This indication could come from sources such as a census, British Naturalisation document or a passenger record and, if you are fortunate, it will provide the country of origin and also a town.

Before searching for Sephardic records in an overseas country, it is advisable to explore the Sephardic SIG website for further tips and background information. Then go to and select the geographical focus area of your research. The site then provides a list of appropriate websites, databases and links for that area.

For more in-depth information about the Sephardic communities and resources available in each different country, refer to Sephardic Genealogy by Jeffrey S Malka, 2002.
