Venditae caratiorum; Vendite di caratti (Sales of ship shares)

The series consists of only one volume in which between 1799 and 1800 the purchase and sale of shares were recorded. Records of share trading contain the following information: date of sale, name of the seller, number and price of shares sold, name of the buyer, name of the captain of the ship the shares of which were sold. Share sales were most often recorded in a following format: Adi 2 Luglio 1799; Capitano Cristoforo Milich ha venduto caratti mezzo a Jacob Israel Russi per ducati settanta cinque nel bastimento diretto da quondam capitano Niccolo Marassi (vol. 1, f. 5).

The volume is very important for researching the history of maritime business of Ragusan Jews in the 18th century since almost all the Jews were co-owners of ships of the Republic at that time. Most of them owned 1/2 to 3 shares of one or more ships. The cases where Jews owned half of one ship (12 carats), or more, were very rare. Ragusan Jews sometimes had the ownership of the entire ship, and this data is recorded in the fonds Diversa de Foris (HR-DADU-30). There are many records in this volume in which Jews appear both as sellers and as share buyers. Most records refer to members of a Ragusan family Ambonetti, and other records refer to members of other Ragusan families such as Costantini, Levi Mandolfo, Luzzena, Maestro, Pardo, Russi, Tolentino, Valenzin, Venturra. The records show that even Ragusan women also traded in shares at that time, and some of these women were Jewish, such as Lydia, the wife of Israel Maestro, and Judith, the widow of Nathan Ambonetti (e.g., vol. 1, f. 30).

Venditiones Cancellariae; Vendite Cancellarie (Sale agreements registered at the Chancellery)

The fonds contains data on purchase and sale transactions of real and personal property, such as land, houses, estates, ships, dowries, in the period from the middle of the 13th century to the beginning of the 19th century. The fonds is very important for the research and study of the topographic image of the city of Dubrovnik in that period, the development of urban planning, as well as for the research on trade of living quarters and buildings.

Scarce data available on Jewish people contained in the fonds reveal that in the second half of the 18th century Jews began to buy and sell real estate, i.e., houses that were mostly located near the ghetto, the exception being Abram David Maestro, who at the end of 1641 bought two houses in the street Lučarica, and two years later sold them to two Dubrovnik noblemen. Real estate purchases increased in the 80s of the 18th centuries so much that in 1799 the Senate decided that a Jew who owned several houses could keep only one and should sell the others. Members of Ragusan Jewish families Ambonetti, Coen, Costantini, Janni, Levi Mandolfo, Maestro, Pardo, Russo, Terni (i.e., vol. 135, ff. 180-181) are referenced in this fonds as both: buyers and sellers of houses. In accordance with the regulations of that time concerning the sale of real estate, apart from the name of the seller of the real estate in the document there is also a written consent of the members of his family. Therefore, next to the names of Jewish house-sellers are either the personal names of their wives, sons, and daughters, or the names of their legal guardians.
