I understand that a number of FRANKEL's migrated to Denmark and that a
book was published about the FRANKEL lineage which I am interested in
purchasing. I have been unable to locate who offers this book for sale
and would appreciate any information on how to do so..
It is listed in the bibliography on Denmark page of the
Scandinavia SIG website:

"Genealogical Tables of Jewish Families 14th - 20th Centuries -
Forgotten Fragments of the History of the Fraenkel Family"
By Louis and Henry Fraenkel
Edited by Georg Simon;
on behalf of The Memorial Foundation of Eva and Henry Fraenkel
2 vols. (vol.1: 189 pages; vol. 2: 10 tables). Hardbound.
=80 110.00
ISBN 3-598-11426-5

This two-volume work documents 11,000 individuals belonging to 10
Jewish families who were related to the Fraenkel family >from 1397
to 1992. Many illustrious names are amongst those recorded: the
poet Heinrich Heine, the dramatist Carl Sternheim, the philosophers
Theodor Lessing, Israel Jacobson and David Friedl=E4nder, the
composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and the Nobel prize-winning
chemist Adolf von Baeyer were all family members.

The first volume contains accounts of the family=92s history, as
well as a bibliography and an index of persons. The second part
presents 10 tables with complete family trees. These will be of
outstanding value to biographers.
In Denmark you can order it through:
C. A. Reitzel A/S
N=F8rregade 20
1165 Copenhagen K.
Phone: 33 12 24 00

I will see if I can find the names you are looking for in the index.
