I would like to think aloud and find out if there are participants in this group who have an interest in jewish genealogy in respect to St. Thomas.
The reason for my asking is the following; members of my DELVALLE family have been living on this beautiful island for several years and belonged to the jewish community.
This SALOM DEL VALLE family originated from 17th century Amsterdam and some members found their destination via Curacao in St. Thomas.
One of the first members of the Delvalle family leaving for St. Thomas was
Benjamin Delvalle (Curacao1811-1876 St. Thomas), he was married to Judith de Castro ( Curacao1806-1871 St. Thomas). Benjamin begot 9 children.
It would be nice to hear from you if you are in this same line of research and perhaps we could help and exchange information.
Any information re: Delvalle is much appreciated
