Welcome to the Ottolenghi Family website

Welcome to the Ottolenghi Family Website

Here we are going to look at the history, geography and genealogy of the Ottolenghi Family and their descendants all over the world.

If you are descended from someone with the family name Ottolenghi or Ottolangui, then this is the place for you.

Our mission is to help us all to learn more about our ancestors, to preserve our history, to enable us to be closer to our heritage and to each other.

This website was established by direct descendants of David Ottolenghi who was born in Livorno, Italy in 1734 and emigrated from there to London with three of his children in 1776. His descendants now live in Europe, USA, Israel, Australia and New Zealand. In the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, many who were born, married and died as Ottolangui, lived as “Langley” and eventually they changed their name legally.

Please take a moment to get in touch, we would be very happy to hear from you. This is a co-operative project and we invite you to share news, anecdotes, photographs, articles and other memorabilia here.
