German SIG #Germany Jewish history resources for Augsburg #germany


JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

A GerSIG director received an inquiry >from someone with roots in Augsburg
who's planning a research trip for September, 2017. We were asked if GerSIG
could suggest an authority on repositories, Jewish historical sites
and Augsburg Jewish history who could be hired as "a tour guide of sorts"
in Augsburg.

This was the reply. I think it's worth adding to the GerSIG archives.
The SIG archives can always be searched (in this case it would be for
"Augsburg") at:
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~sigspop
after logging in to JewishGen with your user name and password.

" Probably the best person we can recommend to you in Augsburg is Yehuda
Schenef who runs the Jewish Historical Society of Augsburg. He speaks
English, Hebrew and German. Please tell him that a GerSIG director in Europe
suggested that you should contact him.
