An Index to Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America: Companion Listing of American Jewish and Muslim Names
Was your Mayflower ancestor Jewish? Muslim? In a shot across the bow of Mayflower genealogies, Elizabeth Caldwell Hirschman and Donald N. Yates’ Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America (McFarland, 2012) postulated that many of the initial colonists were actually of Sephardic Jewish and Muslim Moorish ancestry. This comprehensive index allows you to check the book’s historical writings, ship manifests, wills, land grants, DNA test results, family trees and settler lists providing for the first time the Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic and Jewish origins of more than 5,000 surnames.
