SULZBACH Family of Fuerth #germany


There is a family tree for a SULZBACH family that lived in Fuerth near
Nuernberg at the Leo Baeck Institute in New York. The family consists
of descendants of a Seligmann (Pinchas) SULZBACH who died on 22 August
1801 in Fuerth. He was married three times, 1. to Gitel GUTMANN (1745 -
13 September 1764 Fuerth), 2. in 1766 to Matle (or Sorle) GUTMANN (died
1 March 1784 Fuerth), and 3. on 29 June 1784 in Sulzbach to Hannele
Josel (SULZBACH?).

Seligmann's father was Loeser of Sulzbach in the Upper Palatinate (now
Sulzbach-Rosenberg, a few miles northwest of Amberg). It appears to me
that this is the same person as my fifth great grandfather Lazarus
Seligmann of Sulzbach. Lazarus Seligmann is listed in a 1745 census of
Sulzbach. Lazarus Seligmann is known to have had eight children. I have
identifired only one, my ancestor Joseph Lazarus Seligmann who remained
in Sulzbach. He was born in 1727 and died between 1808 and 1813.

Is anyone familiar with the SULZBACH family of Fuerth?
