Gibraltar census records

The Jewish history of Gibraltar was discussed in a post in this blog on 10 Oct 2010. In the past Gibraltar had a very high percentage of its citizens who were Jewish, in fact in the first census of Gibraltar in 1753, almost 1/3 (575 out of 1800) stated that they were Jewish.
Now, the Knowles Collection- Jews of Africa and the Orient has been updated and includes the 1777 Jewish inhabitants of Gibraltar (FHL Film #1729538 item 7). The records of the censuses for the years 1834-1931, as well as the 1753 Jewish inhabitants of Gibraltar, are now being added to the collection and will be available after the next update.
