France: Revue du Cercle de Généalogie Juive, new issue

The Cercle de Genealogie Juive (Paris, France) has published the new edition of its journal, Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive.

Issue 101 (January-March 2010) includes:

-- Jews in Hungary: History and Genealogy, by Georges Graner, who covers Hungarian and Jewish history from the 14th century through the Holocaust, and provides steps to obtain information on searching Jewish ancestors in Hungary.

-- Jews in Ensisheim (Alsace) in the 18th century, by Denis Ingold, who describes how Jews returned to the town after Hapsburg possessions in Alsace were returned to the King of France following the Thirty Years' War (1648). Later, Jews migrated again to more attractive and welcoming cities like Breisach and Metz.

--Salomon Schueler (1870-1938), prominent rabbi: from Hegenheim to Saint-Louis (Alsace), by Lea Rogg, offers the life and times of the first rabbi of Saint-Louis (Upper Rhine, near the Swiss border). Educated at Berlin's orthodox Hildesheimer Yeshiva, he contributed to the community as the city became more modern.

-- Current state of Jewish genealogy in Germany, by Ernest Kallman. The article provides information on the pre-1800 period when vital records recording did not exist, on the Jewish population of the country and attitudes towards the Jews since 1945, the appearance of researchers and their work, and a case study on a step-by-step search for Dilsheimer ancestors (which was in the journal's previous issue). it also attempts to show what is necessary for successful research particularly when the researcher is linguistically-challenged.
