I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for two years.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in suburban Lexington, Massachusetts, USA. My native language is English.
I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet
I have identified the names and birth and death dates of 4 of my
grandparents, 8 of my great grandparents and 16 of my great great grandparents.
My primary research goals now are to find out my familiy history on
my father's mother's side in Germany.
The family names and towns that I am researching are:
HELLER, MANDELBAUM, SILBERLOSS, LEHMAN - Dennenlohe, Bavaria (near
My ggg grandfather and grandmother were Isaac Kallman HELLER
(b. Jan 7, 1780, d. 29 Dec 1857 in New Haven, Connecticut) and
Leah MANDELBAUM (b. 1791, d. ??) both of Dennenlohe;
and my ggg grandfather and grandmother Hirsch SILBERLOSS/LEHMAN and
Sarah also of Dennenlohe.
I am seeking birth, marriage, death records for Jewish residents at that
time in Dennenlohe. I do have the Jewish Registers for 1813-1861 for Middle
STERN - Nackenheim (or Nachenheim), Hesse-Darmstadt. My gg
grandfather Nathan STERN was born in Nackenheim in 1801 (died
1846). Nathan was married to Magdeline Falker (b. 1809 in Mussbach,
d. 25 May 1859 in NYC). Nathan's father Samuel STERN was born in
Holland July 3, 1760 (died in Darmstadt, 25 May 1859, remains at
Dalsheim). I am looking for any information on the Stern family in Nackenheim.
