I would like to know whether there are any resources online (excluding
Ancestry, Family Search and JewishGen, which I have searched already),
or any archives that I can contact, that have records regarding the Jews
who lived in Westheim (now Westeim bei Hassfurt) in the 1800s and early
In particular, I am looking for the birth, marriage and/or death records
of Isaac PULVER/PULFER and his first wife Karolina geb.FRANKFELDER.
I would like to learn their biographical details and, most especially,
the names of their parents. Their first child (my great-grandmother,
Marianna) was born in 1871, so we can guess backwards that Isaac and
Karolina were probably born in the late 1840s or early 1850s. Karolina's
last child was born in 1878 and the next wife -- whose name was
Betty Schloss (I have her birthdate and parents' names) -- gave birth to
her first child sometime around 1889. Again, we can count backward and
assume Karolina passed away between 1878-1888 or so.
Finally, as far as I can tell, Betty had four additional children
including one born in 1902, so Isaac was alive until then (or at
least nine months before then!) or even later.
As always, thank you for your thoughts and insights,
