Re: Hamburg Kabronim Buch #general

"Kabronim" is the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew word "Kabranim".
A "kabran" is a gravedigger. The "Kabronim Buch" is the "Gravediggers' book" -
most probably, the register in which graves were registered.

In researching my 18th and 19th century Herschel of Hamburg ancestors I came
across a book Memor-Buch die judischen Friedhofe in Wandsbek, by Naftali
Bar-Giora Bamberger with pictures of the gravestones at Wandsbek. In that
book there are footnotes discussing the inscriptions on the gravestones. Some
of the footnotes make reference to the "Kabronim Buch," sometimes abbreviated
K. B.

Can anyone tell me what the Kabronim Buch was?
