Two Charity Societies in Livorno, Italy
(1664 and 1715)

Arranged by
Mathilde Tagger


   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 Holim Society (Visiting the Ill). A total of 82 members.
   Most of the surnames are typical converso names. Many given names are missing.
