Re: Looking for inform on Marguerite (Margaretha) HAUPTMANN, HOFFMAN, OFFMAN, or KAUFMAN b. 1698 Baden-Wurttemberg, Gemany d. 1760 in Picardie, France married to Martin Mayer (Mair, Meyer) #france


There were certainly small rural Jewish communities in neighboring Baden in the 18th century, so I believe there would have been Jewish communities in Wurttemberg as well.  My own HOFMANN ancestors, going back to my 6th great grandparents, lived in Schmieheim in Baden and are buried in the Schmieheim Jewish Cemetery.  Records exist for both the Jewish and Christian communities of most towns, but as Reuven Mohr points out you need a location.
