Re: Bavarian Matrikel #germany

Bernhard Purin <bernhard_purin@...>

The Matrikeln (or Juedische Standesregister) exist for most of the Bavarian
Kehillot. You may find them in one of the Staatsarchive (Munich, Augsburg,
Nuremberg, Regensburg, Bamberg and Wuerzburg) depending on the place you are

Most of the Matrikel are also available at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem.

A good overview of the archival material available for each Bavarian Kehilla
is given in:
