Hello, Jewishgenners. Does anyone know of a reference list or chart of the
respective lines of descent of SHAPIROs >from Rashi through the various
countries? I was just looking at one Hebrew reference stating that the Baal
Shem Tov was descended through the brother of Rabbi Moshe Isserles of Cracow
and Lurias >from Rabbi Shmuel Shapiro of Speyer whose wife was descended via
Troyes >from the Rivan (Rabbi Yehuda ben Natan), the son-in-law of Rashi.
