Some contacts I have collected for research in Heidelberg are:

Ms. Diana Weber
Stadtarchiv Heidelberg
69117 Heidelberg, Germany
Tel.: 0 6221/58-1982
Fax: 0 6221/58-4947
e-mail: WeberD@...

Standesamt Heidelberg Rathaus
Heidelberg, Germany

Juedische Gemeinde Heidelberg
Haeusser Str. 10-12
69115 Heidelberg, Germany

The Jewish Cemetery in Heidelberg
Heidelberger Bergfriehof, Rohrbacher Strasse, Heidelberg, Germany

The following url may be of value.
It is of the Zentralarchiv zur Erforschung der Geschichte der Juden In
[Central Archives for Research on the History of the Jews in Germany]
There is a link to an English summary which explains that it was founded in
1987 as an establishment of the Central Council of Jews in Germany can be
thought of as the successor to the former General Archives of the German
Jews which was located in Berlin 1905- 1939. It is composed mainly of post
1945 community documents, but also provides access to many historical
collections now in Heidelberg, and through other archives and resources in
Germany, Israel, France, the USA and around the world. Of special help is a
list of documentations and resources for the old Jewish cemeteries in
Germany. The address is: Bienenstra=DFe 5, D-69117 Heidelberg, Germany.
Telefon: + 49/ (0)6221/ 164141, Telefax: + 49/ (0)6221/ 181049

The Ruprecht-Karls-Universitaet Heidelberg has digitalized Heidelberg's
address books >from 1839-1943
( a few volumes are missing). The site is in German and can be viewed at:
The books are organized more like our modern "yellow pages", as besides the
directory of inhabitants they also have other sections, such as house owner
register, institutions, public authorities, ads, etc.

Additional resources for Heidelberg and other cities and towns in Germany
are listed at the GerSig website:

My second question is, what records are available for Heidelberg
(possibly >from the late 19th century and into the 20th century) that
will help us piece together this GRUNEBAUM family?
