The Stadtarchiv Leipzig has Jewish records for Rheinland, Kreis Aachen,
which I came across recently, but haven't been able to access. The
address is:
and the catalogue entry is Bestand 22310. 20.01 Rheinland, Kreis Aachen
There are at least 16 further entries for Rheinland locations, down to
I believe that these are the 1808 name-adoption declarations, but they
are apparently only available for inspection at the Leipzig archive,
because they are on the original microfilms.

regional Jewish records for Juelich (Julich ) region 1780-1850?

Such a governmental publication would be interesting to see for
Juelich and neighboring communities, which at that time might have
been part of Regierungsbezirk Aachen. I cannot see the relevant years
for Aachen. Or maybe Juelich belonged to Koeln? Is anyone familiar
with name adoption under Prussian administration in this region, and
where it was published?
Since Juelich was part of France in the Napoleonic era (~1796-1815),
there should also be name adoption declarations according to French
law (1808/09). Are those accessible on internet somewhere? (In this
case my problem is that I don't have the distinct location, only place
of birth). Thanks for your assistance,
