German SIG #Germany Early West-European Jewish language #germany
I'm trying to find evidence about the language of Jewish people in the
Rhine valleys before Napoleon's invasion and the beginning of secular
schooling. Do any Gersiggers have printed or manuscript examples in
Yiddish or German >from the area (other than official documents) that
they would be willing to send me images of? So far I've seen early
Yiddish letters >from Eastern Europe, but how about West Germany in the
17th century and at the start of the 18th?
