Surnames #names #germany

Lin Herz

HI Everyone,
I hope you all are safe and well.
I'd like to list my family surnames as I have not done this in a while to see if anyone is researching the same names. I'm not sure if the format I'm using is all right for our new message list format. I'm hoping someone will see a name that is among their family surnames.
I have the surname and then where in Germany they are from. 

Sincerely and best wishes,
Lin Herz

Hi Lin

you mentioned
*WOLF-*Munster, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen, Germany
I'm living at Münster and was confronted for the first time
about 3 years ago with the genealogy of Jewish fellow
citizens. Although I have been researching for over 45
years, this was a completely new challenge, as completely
different sources had to be found and consulted.

I'm interested in all facts about jewish families in Münster.

At present I have information about Zilly Wolf, wife of
Abraham Falk, marriage on 06 JUL 1862 in Münster, daughter
of Meyer Wolf. Zilly Wolf is said to come from Lützelsachsen.

Regina (Reingen) Wolf, daughter of Samuel Wolf and Veilchen
(Vögelchen) NN was born on 10 OCT 1810 in Langen (Hessen)
and died on 02 SEP 1851 in Frankfurt. She married ABraham
Strauß on 25 MAY 1845 in Sprendlingen (Dreieich). In Münster
they have a daughter Rosina, born on 08 FEB 1846.

I am very pleased about an exchange.
