    Dear Researchers,

    In 2014 a Hebrew translation of the first pinkas (from 1589) of Casale
    was published by Magnes Press: https://www.magnespress.co.il/en/search?q=Minutes+Book+of+the+Jewish+Community+of+Casale+Monferrato+1589-1657&format=print
    [MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://tinyurl.com/y25zvpz2 ]

    This is an important piece of history for Jewish Genealogists of the
    Piedmont area (and specifically Casale and Alessandria, towns between
    Torino and Milano). This area was one of the places refugees from Spain
    went during the late 15th and early 16th so this book could be a bridge
    between later generations and the Spanish period.

    I wonder if anyone has delved into this volume which I cannot read in
    Hebrew? Would it be worth translating for genealogical purposes?
