During the period of the British Mandate in Palestine (1921-1948) people who legally changed their name had
this information posted in the British / Palestinian publication called the 'Palestine Gazette'.

28,256 names were published showing the old name, new name and sometimes country of origin. Not everyone
legally changed their name, perhaps fewer than 50% did so. Most of them were Jews.

The names were extracted by Gary Mokotoff and the late Rabbi Shmuel Gorr in the 1980s and published on micro-
fiche by Avotaynu. The repository is of value to genealogists who know that relatives went to Eretz Yisrael and
changed their name but the new name is not known.
