Hello, I am researching my EHRMANN family in Bonfeld, Wurttemberg Germany.
As far as I know, they are not Jewish. However, I found a surname index at
my university library that says that the name Ehrmann is Jewish. I have
traced them back to Johann Albrecht Ehrmann, born about 1690 location
unknown, died 1 Jan 1762 in Bonfeld. He married a Maria Elis. Streib and
their children were baptized in the Lutheran Church in Bonfeld. I have
found that there were many Jewish settlements in this part of Germany and
am wondering if it is remotely possible that he was a convert to
Lutheranism?? Am I off track?
