|New names adopted in British Palestine
Changes of name in Palestine under the British mandate were advertised in the Palestine Gazette. These are the changes listed from July to December 1936. This was a period when there were many arrivals of persecuted Jews from eastern Europe, and in many cases the new names replaced German, Polish, Lithuanian &c. surnames with Hebrew surnames: but other faiths and nationalities are represented. Each person's original and new name is given, together with their nationality and address (no more precisely than, say, Haifa or Tel Aviv). This is the index to the new surnames.
