Visiting Nancy #general

I'm planning a visit to Nancy, France as that's where my GGF & GF lived prior to
emigration to the US in 1898. Both before and during my visit I'd like to learn as
much as I can about the Jewish community in Nancy, especially the community of Jews
who moved there >from Poland. What drew them to Nancy? What was the Jewish
community like at the time (dichotomy between families who'd been there for
generations vs newcomers?)? What was the relationship like between the gentile
community and the Jews in the late 19th century?

I'd be grateful for any resources, in print or an in person guide, you can
recommend. What I'm finding online relates primarily to earlier periods than my
focus.

Many thanks,
