As a project supported by the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy and the Paul Jacobi Center at the Jewish National and University Library, Jerusalem, Maria Jose Surribas is translating archival records from the town of Cervera in Catalonia, Spain. This has relevance for Iberian Ashkenaz project members since Cervera was a major Medieval Jewish community and a crossroad on the routes leading from France, Girona and Barcelona to the rest of Spain.
