Juive # 94 has just been published. Here is the summary of articles of
articles on topic to GerSIG:

from Lengnau to //New York//: the Guggenheim family, part two
How to make use of one's wealth/ by Jacques-Henri Gougenheim**

As announced in the first part, the increased number of descendants,
and thus heirs, and the fading of brotherly togetherness brought an
end to an apparently endless increase in wealth and power. J.-H.
Gougenheim portraits most of the descendants, mainly those members of
the second, third and fourth generation who were talented and
successful in their business. Almost all of the Guggenheims devoted a
significant part of their money to charitable, artistic and scientific
foundations that bear the name Guggenheim. Their most remarkable
success is to have found outside of the family capable and devoted
trustees to manage and develop these foundations.

/A genealogical-biblical round trip/ by Ernest Kallmann

A then unknown Israeli genealogist contacted the author because he had
located his great-grandfather's (in fact his
great-great-grandfather's) family Bible with an also unknown lady. The
Bible was published in 1837 by German scholars directed by Leopold
Zunz, the father of German and American Reform Judaism. The copy bears
handwritten notes by the owner, recalling the main events of his
family life. It has been generously presented to Ernest Kallmann. In
the meantime the few uncertainties arising >from its thorough
examination have been cleared. All persons involved in the discovery
and the return of the book, though not related, are linked by a
genealogical circle that is almost closed.

Search for the ancestors of Todrosse >from Schalbach (Moselle) by Pascal Faustini

While helping a researcher who has hit a brick-wall with the marriage
record of his ancestor Todrosse in 1804, Pascal Faustini progresses
several generations back perusing the existing research tools, mostly
developed by volunteer members of our society. His paper exemplifies
how Jewish genealogy can be conducted back to the late 17th century in
Alsace and Moselle >from one's desk, provided sufficient flair and
cross-checking is applied.
