Tracing Your Jewish Roots from German-Speaking Europe with Fran Luebke
This workshop provides an overview of resources & research techniques that address unique challenges faced by genealogists looking for Jewish ancestors from German-speaking Europe. It covers sources available online and not, focusing on Jewish records including name change documents, Matrikel lists, cemetery records, and “Schutzgeld” tax documents.
As more Jewish records become available to the public, a successful family researcher needs to be a good detective and follow many leads.
Fran Loeb Luebke has a Masters degree in history and has been tracing and tracking her own ancestors for over 35 years.
