Descendants of the Hacham Zvi #general


IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

My not-yet-relative Rabbi Yehudah Gershon Pickholz
(b. 1844) writes several times that his mother is a
descendant of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Ashkenazi, the Hacham Zvi.

I assume that the connection is not via the Hacham Zvi's
famous son Rabbi Yaakov Emden (Yavitz) - he would have said
so.

Does anyone have a genealogy of the Hacham Zvi's descendants?

Israel Pickholtz asks:

Chapter XIII of Neil Rosenstein's The Unbroken Chain (30 pages in the 2d
edition) recounts this genealogy, including ten children of the Chacham Zvi
besides Yavetz. Yehuda Gershon Pickholz does not appear there, but perhaps
Israel will recognize some names that do appear.
