Surnames/tags: Juifs_Maroc_Moroccan_Jewry Moroccan_Jews
The goal of this project is to gather family trees of Moroccan jews in the same location (WikiTree) and to identify family relationship. Indeed, in Morocco, there were no Census and no official documentation until recently (1930). In addition, the vast majority of Moroccan jews left Morocco and Moroccan Jewish community is spread out all over the world, mostly in Israel, France and Canada though. Thus, today family history and genealogy rely mostly on memory of the elders.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Raquel Levy-Toledano.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Reach out to any individual of Jewish Moroccan descent you know
- Ask them to register to WikiTree (using the project tag ?) and to enter basic information on themselves, their parents, their grandparent and great-grandparent, and all there ancestors there are aware of.
- Basic information for each individuel entered in the WikiTree include: last name at birth, first name, year of birth, place of birth, year of death, place of death. Family link (spouse, child) with any other individual entered or already included in WikiTree
