Scattered all over the world, descendants of Jewish families whose roots can be traced back to places in Baden-Württemberg still live today. The Gäu-Neckar-Alb memorial association would like to help to find out the family roots and to establish connections to other families.
This genealogical knowledge database www.juedische-familien.de based on the genealogy software TNG creates a basis for family, local and historical research. It also serves to collect documents, photos and sources, with the help of which the life history of Jewish families can be documented and passed on.
The speaker Andrea Dettling will present which analog and digital sources are relevant for the genealogy of Jewish families, which research possibilities are promising and how the results can be presented professionally.
Using the database www.juedische-familien.de as an example, it will be shown how Jewish citizens searching for their family roots around the world can be helped with archival documents or lists of ancestors to form a picture of the lives of their ancestors in Germany.
