REVUE No. 67 - Cercle de Genealogie Juive.

Three given names Asher, Lemle and Lambert applied to reconstruct a
CAHEN family in Metz
Pierre-André MEYER
These three given names are equivalent in the Metz Jewish onomastics ;
this is used to try reconstructing the genealogy of one of the many
CAHEN families in Metz during the 17th and 18th century. The various tax
rolls starting in 1665 and the Metz Memorbuch have contributed the
needed information.

Genealogy >from your desk.
J. B.
Combining the reading of Claudia Ulrich's book about the county of
Crehange (Kriechingen) during the 18th century, a consultation with
Pascal FAUSTINI, the use of the Index by D & R LEESON of A. FRAENCKEL's
"Memoire juive en Alsace" allows to complement a genealogy search in

The Salomon Michel, a family >from Ennery (Moselle)
A question in the Q/A section of the Revue has shown that descendants
from Salomon Michel may bear the family names SALOMON or MICHEL. A
thorough examination of civil records reveals that the Ennery civil
authorities have applied Jewish naming traditions throughout the greater
part of the 19th century.

Unexpected relationship.
Nathan KATZ (1892-1981) a poet writing in Alsatian dialect, has
established the status of the dialect of the southern part of Alsace. He
shares an ancestor in the 7th generation with Andre FROSSARD
(1915-1995), a member of the Academie Française and a famous journalist
of Le Figaro.

An early 19th century ketubah >from Nîmes (Comtat-Venaissin)
The document originates in the historian Cecil ROTH's judaica collection
at the Beth Tzedek synagogue in Toronto. It states the marriage of Saul
Hain CREMIEUX and Sara CARCASSONNE. The witnesses and attendants can be
identified by their signatures ; they belong to the upper class of the
Jewish community.
