Gypsy Records

Where do Gypsies originate from? Some say that they came from Egypt and that "Gypsies" is a derivation of the word "Egyptians". Whatever the case, they have been around for hundreds of years, travelling across the continent of Europe. Whether your Gypsy ancestors came from France or Italy, England or Scotland, here is a good place to begin your research.

A bibliography is available, which lists literature relating to gypsies that will help to get you started. Maybe you would like to learn the Gypsy language. Depending upon its roots, there are many to choose from. However, we have Romano Lavo-Lil, Word Book of the Romany, or English Gypsy Language.

So, whether you are non-Gypsy or of Gypsy extraction, please read further about this fascinating race of people
