The Hyamson Papers.

A collection of Pedigrees

One day, in conversation, I mentioned the Hyamson Papers as a useful resource for Jewish genealogy. The person I was talking to was not familiar with the resource and I thought it might be of interest for those who can access records in London. Apparently Hyamson did not do much original research but recorded verbatim information given to him. Nevertheless there is a lot of value in his work as it opens up avenues for research. The fiche are not easy to read and most are rough and handwritten but I found a great deal of useful information. There is a set of microfiche at the Society of Genealogists. If you visit the centre be aware that if you are not a member you will have to pay a fee (see the above website link for charges to members and non members). I don't know when Hyamson died (perhaps someone can tell us) so I don't know until which year the papers were collected but there is a letter in there written in the 1950's.
Kind Regards, Judy Wolkovitch.

Daryl Coup informs us tht Albert Montefiore HYAMSON was born in 1875 and died in 1954.(thanks Daryl)
