Monastirli Families living in Jerusalem in 1839ce Many families from all over the world emigrated to Ottoman-controlled Palestine prior to 1839. These were documented in a census funded by Sir Moses Montefiore, a British national.

We list here those who claimed Monastir as their birthplace. The exact relationships among all these individuals may not be easily ascertainable from the documentary record, so it may appear to be quite fragmentary. Perhaps it can be augmented by families who read here about these individuals.

The families listed were Alkotser, Esformas, Levi, Pardo, Sid, Yisrael.
