Getting Jewish Matriculation (Judenmatrikel) records for Upper Franconia #germany #records

Can you give me any guidance about making research requests to the Society?  Like what kind of information they can find, what kind of information would it be good for me to tell them to help them find the information?

I have four generations of relatives who lived in Nuremberg, and many who lived in Hagenbach in Pretzfeld, and some who lived in Huttenbach in Simmelsdorf, those two towns are 30-35 miles NNE and NE of Nuremberg, both in Upper Franconia also I think.  I could make a list of relatives, what I know of their birth and death dates and places, and where they lived in Germany.  For quite a few, if they emigrated from Germany I know when and to where, and a number I know they didn't leave Germany, etc.  Thanks!

You can also make a research request to the Society. I made one once and I got more material that I had asked for. Don't be shy in corresponding in English, English is taught in all German schools and most German have a working knowledge of Englsh.

Hi,
On the WikiTree pages for two my ancestors (Abraham Moses Hutzler and Moses Hutzler), they refer to a source “Staatsarchiv Bamberg: Die Judenmatrikel 1824-1861 für Oberfranken, Teil I, Signatur H561, Landgericht Ebermannstadt, Ort: Hagenbach, München, Nürnberg : 2017 (DVD)”, aka “State Archives Bamberg - The Jewish Matriculation 1824-1861 for Upper Franconia”.
I'm interested in searching the Judenmatrikel records for information on those ancestors, and to see if it has information on other ancestors also. I think I found these records on DVD for sale by an organization “Gesellschaft für Familienforschung in Franken e. V.”, aka “Society for Family History in Franconia e. V.”  The DVDs are available for 18 euros plus postage, and says they are in both German and English.  You have to specify if you want the data in RTF (rich text format) or PDF format.  It says for sales to non-members abroad, payment needs to be made in advance, they don’t specify specifically how to pay.  It says you can either snail-mail them an order form, or order by email, in which case the order form isn’t needed.
 
I don’t know German, this is my understanding using the Safari browser webpage “translate” feature.
I’d like to arrange by email to buy this, but I don’t speak any German, I guess will need to exchange a few emails to arrange payment, figure out what the postage will be, etc.  I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how I might arrange this, maybe someone else has previously bought this or something else from them?  Maybe the Family History Society has someone helping with orders who speak English?  What do you think the odds of that are?

If anyone has suggestions for any other ways I might get these records, that might help too.  I'd probably want to get my own copy of the DVD, if the alternative was that I needed to email someone else who had the DVD multiple times, to ask them to do various searches on it.
 
Also, which data format do you think it would be more useful to get the data in, RTF or PDF?  Maybe it would be good to ask the Family History Society that also.
 
Thanks,
Mike Daren
