Hi to your friend.

I have this family going back to 1499 but a lot of it is unproven and goes back to Rabbis in Franfort on Main. A lot of the information is in ancient Hebrew as well!

Here is what is proven. Where is your friend based and who are they? I was wrong with a lot of this post as I had just started out. Have uncovered a lot of interesting information ie Matilda was a mixed breed later whose Grandmother was a "Unknown Singalese Lady". I also have a bit of information about her family in Ceylon.

There are quite a few people in the UK doing research as well. I can be contacted on the email address and more than happy to meet/share information.
