INTRO - researching ABRAHAM and HERZ families from BADEN #germany

Janette Silverman <jsilverman@...>

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for over 25 years.
I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
My previous research has been in Galicia which is still my primary focus.

I live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA My native language is English and I stumble
around in Hebrew. I consider myself to be fairly expert in using a computer.
My experience in using the Internet is also extensive.

Most of my family is >from Eastern Europe and my family tree is most developed
in those branches. The names I have entered in JGFF and their countries of
origin are again, mostly >from Galicia.

My primary research goals now are to find out how to research a family's
origins in Baden - the two people whose roots I am looking for are >from Baden
- Israel ABRAHAM and Rachel HERZ who came to the USA in 1868 as newly weds.
We have no record of family left behind in Baden nor other family members
traveling with them to the US where they settled in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Any help would be much appreciated
