==The spellings LORCH and LORSCH are virtually interchangeable. Lorsch is
a town located some 50 km SSE of Mainz. There was much movement of
Jews between the two. My MAINZER gggm was born in Lorsch . . .

==She married a Baruch WOLFF >from Pfungstadt, for whatever help this
may be to you in your search for WOLF. The WOL[F] surname was among the most
popular among German Jews, and is popular, too, among German non-Jews.
