Re: The female name Sprintz - RESOURCE CITATION #germany

Christof Eberstadt <CPA-Eberstadt@...>

In my family there was a Sprinz in Worms-Hessen, who adopted the first
name "Franziska" in 1808 when, due to a Napoleonic law, Jews had to
choose new names. I quite often found this transformation
Sprinz-Franziska in other families, while I did not had Sprinz-Sofie

In Worms, 513 Jews are counted in the 1808-act and most of them
presented by their old an their new name. Often the new name was
identical with the old one. I have the complete list, in copy of the
handwritten act, and typed, sorted by number, family name, and first
name. I have also a list comparing the 1808 list with the list of 1801,
when birth dates and places were given. If someone's interested in
information, she and he can contact me directly.
