von der PORTEN and FUERST [Hamburg] #germany


Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

I have in my possession a photocopy of a family tree that's at the Leo Baeck
Institute. It's the family history of Dr. Moritz FUERST, of Hamburg. Very
early on it says that the earliest FUERST in Hamburg was Chaim, son of
Ruben, described by Glueckl of Hameln as the richest Jew in Hamburg. The
family tree goes on to say that he had 2 daughters and 4 sons. [Published
genealogies focus on two sons, Moses & Salomon]. One daughter married
Salomon Isaak Knorr von der Porten. This couple is the ancestor of the
Hamburg von der Porten family. Does anyone have another reference for this?

Yes, I've already tried a web search & the FTJP. Thanks!
