1851 Anglo-Jewry Database1851 Anglo-Jewry DatabaseThe database covers mainly England, Wales and Scotland with a few additions from Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Most of the names, but not all, are linked to the 1851 census. There are approaching 29,000 names, which is probably more than 90 per cent of the Jewish population in Britain at that time. It brings together the work of nearly 250 contributors from around the world.
