In an article published in Revue des Etudes Juives
in 1931, the historian Cecil Roth wrote about the Conversos
in Livorno, Italy. He illustrated his article with the lists of members of two charity societies. The first one dating from 1644
deals with allocations to Converso
orphans who returned to Judaism. The second list dating from 1715 is about the members of Bikur
Society (Visiting the Ill). A total of 82 members.
Most of the surnames are typical converso names. Many given names are missing.
