Search hints:
(See FAQ button for additional tips):

1. This index is meant as a helpful tool to more rapidly lead to you to the individual component database which contain more detailed information about the person.
2. In the individual databases making up the index, some individuals did not have surnames. So search the by given name only too and individual databases for that country as well.
3. When searching this index, search primarily on "Surnames" to maximize your chances of finding a person.
    **A few individuals did not have surnames in the component databases. They can be searched for by entering N/A in the Surname field.
4. When filtering by the country field, remember that many individuals listed as living in Erets Israel came from or were born in other countries. The other countries or countries of origin are often found in the individual databases.
5. "Sounds like" uses the American Soundex; "is phonetically" uses Morse-Beider's new phonetic matching designed for Sephardic names.
6. Do not use accented or foreign letters in the search fields. Because of the potential confusion I have converted such letters to their un-accented versions. Therefore
è, ê, ë will all be found as e
Ç, ç (c-cedilla) will be found as C, c
Names were written phonetically as found (e.g. Culema (pronounced Suleman) and name variants (Cag equialent to Isaac), etc.
7. **Many Sephardic surnames are composite surnames (Cohen Scali, Cohen Abulafia, Aben Haim. Ben Moussa, etc.). Therefore a search in the database for "Cohen" using the "is exactly" or "sounds like" search fields will not find most Cohen surnames. Searching for Cohen using "contains" will find them all. So avoid searching by "is exactly" and use the "contains" field instead.
