German SIG #Germany Re: SCHWARZSCHILD and HOR(O)WITZ of Frankfurt am Main #germany


For the parents of Taube Landau (no relation to me) you might try the
recently published

"Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner, Teil 1, Die Rabbiner der
Emanzipationszeit in der deutschen, böhmischen und grosspolnischen
Ländern, 1781-1871", K. G. Saur, München, 2004 (there is a second part
covering the period 1871-1945).

I have consulted it regarding my own antecedents and it often indicates who
the parents of the wife of a rabbi are - particularly if she is >from a
rabbinic family.

Some kind colleagues who have access to this book have provided some amazing
entries containing a storehouse of information.

The team that compiled it are to be congratulated - it is in German but it
should be in every library dealing with German Jewry despite its cost -
which obviously reflects the amount of work that has been put into it.

Does anybody out there have a copy of "Stammtafeln der von Liebmann
SCHWARZSCHILD in Frankfurt a. M. '(1555-1594)' abstammenden Familien"
by Dr Louis Neustadt (Frankfurt am Main: Dr. von Kumpf & Reis, 1886).
The copy at the municipal archives in Frankfurt disappeared 13 years
ago. The copy at the State Library in Berlin was destroyed in the war.
Neither the Library of Congress nor the British Library has a copy. I
would love to have a photocopy and would, of course, pay the costs. A
gedcom file covering the same territory (and more?!) would do too.
I am particularly interested in the descendants of Israel Aron
SCHWARZSCHILD (23 June 1803-1853) and his wife Bina HORWITZ (22 Jan
1803 Frankfurt - 31 Oct 1887 Frankfurt). She was the daughter of Zwi
Hirsch Horwitz, chief rabbi of Frankfurt am Main who died in 1817. Bina
was a child of his second wife, Taube LANDAU. __Does anybody know who her
parents were?__ Isaac Aron and Bina SCHWARZSCHILD are reportedly the
ancestors of those SCHWARZSCHILDs who ran a bank in Frankfurt. The
HORWITZes are my family. In the records I found in the Frankfurt
archives the family name is indeed spelled with just one 'O'.
