Germany’s boundaries have changed markedly over time. This talk works backward from today’s Germany to the early 19th century, emphasizing historical events and their impact on Jewish life. Before 1871, Germany was composed of dozens of separate states. Where (in what states) were my ancestors located? What records were kept where? What was the legal status of Jews? To properly research Jewish records there, you’ll need to answer these questions.
Roger Lustig specializes in research on Jewish families of Prussian Poland. He has worked in archives in the United States, Germany and Poland and advises museums and civic groups.
