STERN family of Malsch, Landkreis Karlsruhe #germany
Is anyone researching or have information about the STERN family of Malsch in the present-day Landkreis (County of) Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany?
I recently found out that the STERN name adopter Joseph Isaak (about 1751 – 19 February 1816 Malsch) was a stepbrother of Marx Nathan, my ancestor who, along with his brother Abraham Nathan, adopted the family name BÄR (BAER) in 1809 in Malsch. It would not surprise me if Joseph was also their first cousin, perhaps a son of their maternal uncle Isaac Abraham who apparently disappeared from Malsch records after being denied Schutz (rights of residence, marry, etc.) in 1745.
A member if the STERN family of Malsch was the historian Selma STERN-TÄUBLER who was born in Kippenheim.--
