Professional Help with Rabbinic Genealogy #rabbinic
For the past year or so, I have delved deeply into my Rabbinic line. I can only go back to the 1600s, which is not very far for Rabbinic families.
I have documents that say some lines descend from Rabbis like the Shelah HaKadosh, but I have not managed to go back any further than the 1600s.
The two families are:
Bendet (of Rabbi Bendet Podkover)
Lipkin (Yisrael Salanter's ancestors)
I was wondering if anyone might know a contact with expertise on Rabbinic genealogy. I do not think my current resources will enable me to go back any further. Many Rabbinic lines do go back much further, though, leading me to believe it is possible.
