German SIG #Germany Announcing a cooperation between Steve Weil and the Leo Baeck Institute - Jebenhausen & Goeppingen community history translation #germany
JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
Steve Weil of Chicago Illinois is a charter member of GerSIG who was
active in German Jewish research long before our SIG was
organized in 1998.
Mr Weil has spearheaded and supported a complete translation of Dr.
Aron Tenzer's 1927 History of the Jewish Community of
Jebenhausen and Goeppingen (updated in 1988).
The translation will soon be available online on the Leo Baeck
Institute's Digibaeck. Steve's single handed oversight and funding
of the project is an important contribution to the genealogy field,
and good example for us all. I join Karen Franklin at LBI in thanking
Steve for his contribution of work and financing to this endeavor.
When the English translation is completed and becomes available on
line via Digibaeck it will be announced here.
Until then, 3 German language editions of the book are available at
The Leo Baeck Institute. Search for them via:
The German version of the book is listed in the GerSIG Community
