An excellent article about the Hebrew alphabet can be found at:

The link below depicts the evolution of the Hebrew script:

According to that table and the article, seemingly the Ashkenazic
Hebrew cursive script evolved in Germany.

Can anyone tell me whether the current formalized cursive script that's
used in Israel was developed in Germany or in Eastern Europe?
I'm trying to trace some documents to their geographic origin.
