Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
France, Issue 132, winter 2017 has just been published.
Issue 132 contents include:

About the Coblentz family of Haguenau (Alsace) in the 18th century,
Pierre-André Meyer asks some genealogical questions.

from the legal problems encountered in 1733 by Emanuel Coblentz, a
young Jew of Haguenau accused of having falsely shown his intention of
converting to catholicism, and, before him, by Lowel Coblentz, his father,
in conflict for a long time with the merchants and the magistrates of
Haguenau.

The article asks several questions relating to the genealogy of this
family. Disputing different statements by Elie Scheid, the historian of
the Jewish community of Haguenau, the author shows a relationship
between Lowel Coblentz and the great Zay (or Coblenz) family of Metz.

He also wonders about the family connections between Coblentz and Feistel
Moch, parnass of the Jewish community of Los Angeles, whose date of death
(largely erased on his grave in the Jewish cemetery in the city)
has been restored.
