If you are interested in the names Jews chose when they were forced to
adopt Germanic names, this website is a real dream:

http://www.a-h-b.de/AHB/links_e.htm

The website refers to Germany but it includes Hohenems, now in the Voralberg,
which is part of our SIG. see: http//www.hohenems.at

Hohenems is also the site of a Jewish Museum; see http://www.jm-hohenems.at

This is the interesting choice of names of the Hohenems Jewish Community in
1813. Please note SULZER, the name of the famous Cantor, Salomon SULZER (1804 -
1890) who came >from Hohenems:

LEVI > BERNHEIMER; GUTMANN; LEVI; MENDELSOHN;
SULZER; WAELSCH and WEILER

BICKART [stet]
BURGAUER [Stet]
HIRSCH > HIRSCHFELD
MICHAEL > NEUMANN
LAZARUS > LOWENBERG
WOLF > LOWENGARD
MOOS/MOSES > MENZ; REICHENBACH
GUGGENHEIM > SCHWEIZER
STEINACH > ULLMANN
