The Montefiore CensusCensuses of the Jewish inhabitants of the Holy Land, Alexandria, Sidon (Saida) and Beirut, were compiled by Sir Moses Montefiore between the years 1839 and 1875.

The Montefiore Endowment commissioned the Israel Genealogical Society to transliterate the censuses into modern Hebrew and English scripts and to translate them.

They have now been published on-line by the Endowment with a search engine in Hebrew and English. The censuses were taken in the years 1839, 1840, 1849, 1855, 1866 and 1875.
