There are a number of versions of the ancestry of Rabbi Mordekhai Jaffe
the "Levush": that of the Eiger family, the late Paul Jacoby, tables in the
Jewish Encyclopedia and in some of the classic nineteenth century
genealogy books.

I am interested in locating primary sources for the Jaffe ancestry,
including perhaps the alleged descent >from Rashi. There is much
confusion in the sources.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has made a study of this
subject.
