John S. Levi
Between 1788 and 1850, more than 1500 Jewish men and women were either transported to Australia as convicts or arrived as free settlers. This important biographical dictionary presents the details - occasionally sketchy but sometimes extensive - of more than 1500 of these pioneers.
Rabbi John Levi’s painstaking research through the fragmentary and often contradictory colonial records has culminated in an invaluable reference work and resource. A wealth of information, including birth names, extra names, nicknames, aliases and maiden names, together with details of marriages, children and occupations, makes These are the Names a major contribution to an important but little-recognised aspect of Australia’s settlement history. For the first time, the earliest generation of Jews to settle in Australia is named and remembered.
