Anglo-Jewish Miscellanies for Harrow County click here

This site is a collection of miscellanies...historical and genealogical information about the Jewish Community of England.  The purpose is to make a modest amount of source material and databases available to researchers.   For further information contact Jeffrey Maynard

London Jews Database - first half of Nineteenth century  This database, which I compiled mainly from trade directories, subscription lists and a few other sources, has over 6,000 entries.   The intention is to provide a tool that will cover the period before UK vital records begin.  It actually covers approximately 1790 to 1860.  This database is hosted by jewishgen.org which is one of the premier and most important sites for Jewish Genealogy.  (note - the database is no longer searchable by itself on JewishGen, but has to be searched first along with their other UK databases and then specifically selected.  You will need a user name and password from JewishGen.

Jewish Labour and the London Poor in 1851      The year 1851 saw the publication of the first edition of Henry Mayhew’s masterpiece, London Labour and the London Poor. These extracts describe the working class section of the Jewish community at the time. I have added names and addresses of some mid-nineteenth century Jewish families which are relevant to the extracts. (New April 10, 2000)
