Book Der alte juedische Friedhof in Fuerth 1607-2007 : Geschichte, Riten, Dokumentation by:Gisela Blume #general
Is there anyone out there who owns the book Der alte juedische Friedhof in Fuerth 1607-2007 : Geschichte, Riten, Dokumentation by:Gisela Blume, who would do a lookup for me?
I was told that the book includes gravestones for Jeanette Lowenstein (1819-1878) and her parents Jakob Lowenstein (b. 1800) and Breindel (also b. 1800). Or possibly it only includes a stone for Jeanette that names her parents. If anyone has this book and can tell me if it includes stones for her parents that will allow me to trace her line farther back, with any more information on the line I would appreciate it.
Thanks for your help.

I have the book
There is a stone for Jette Loewenstein born 1852 and died 1893. Nothing for Jakob and Breindel.
Also nothing in "Der Neue Juedische Friedhof in Fuerth" also by Gisela Blume
Are you sure they were buried in Fuerth/?

I am looking for the family of Mozes Aberbach, who lived in Fuerth and died on 27 July 1912 in Fuerth. Any more information.
Part of my family on my mother's side came from Furth. The family name is Schoen (or Schon - with an umlaut over the "o". I have an image of Julius Schoen and his WW I Bavarian Army Service Record. He died in Berlin in 1933 (I think in Berlin). His sister Freda Schoen Erlanger was murdered in the Holocaust. The remainder of the family may have survived by migrating east away from the Nazis and were interned by the Japanese in Singapore during WWII. They later migrated to the US in 1946.I posted an inquiry in Jewish Gen asking for help in finding my west coast cousins.
Do you have any Schoens or Schons in the old Jewish cemetary in Fuerth?
I've attached a copy of Julius' Bavarian Army service record and what I think is his death record.

Hi Susan and all on this thread,
I have traced my mum's family (Franklin in the East End of London) back to the Fraenkels of Fuerth. I was lucky enough to exchange emails with Gisela Blume back in 2011 where she confirmed the birth/death dates for some of my direct ancestors:
- Serach Fraenkel, born 3 Dec 1759 in Fuerth (died in London in 1840)
- His father Eliezer Behr Fraenkel, 11 May 1722 - 1 March 1760
- His father Jakob Josef Fraenkel, died 1 March 1740 (born in Vienna)
- His father David Isaac Seckel Fraenkel, died 4 Nov 1691 (born in Vienna)
Does Gisela's book have any further information about these individuals - plot locations, images of stones or anything like that?
Furthermore, is there a page or online community for those tracing their ancestry back to the Fuerth community of the 17th, 18th and 19th century where information can be shared and connections made (or is this something for which there is a demand?)
I have also found the Michael Berolzheimer Collection (https://archives.cjh.org/repositories/5/resources/19249) of great help, although I'm not sure how much of it is freely available online as it was a few years ago.
Many thanks all & Shabbat Shalom

Please could someone let me know from where I could obtain a copy of Gisela Blume's book. I have looked at the usual outlets, but it was not listed. Many thanks!
As a postscript to this discussion, for anyone researching the Jewish families of Fuerth and Nuremberg, the Charles Stanton Collection on the LBI website is an invaluable resource.
