In 1813 Bavaria passed a law that required, among other things, that each
Jewish community had to maintain a list of all legally permitted Jewish
families who lived in that community. It was called the Matrikel. Is
anyone familiar with the Matrikel and if so, do they still exist today?

MODERATOR NOTE: You are asking about a very important source of information
for German Jewish genealogists. Some basic research will teach you a lot.
Good luck. MODERATOR
