Re: (no subject)
- I would like to chime in and add something to David Stern's comment about
Suesskind Stern, and Dietz's "Stammbuch der Frankfurter Juden". The
information about the generations prior to Suesskind Stern is not very
accurate. I have gone to the Leo Baeck Institute in NYC and traced the
ancestrty of Suesskind back to 1349 where 2 generations of the family
perished on the same day.
Dietz has geneations going from Samuel Haas ----->Beer Haas (?----1628,
married 1590) ---->Samuel Bing ( ? - 1657, married 1619) -----> Joseph
Jacob Bing (? - 1643) -----> Suesskind Stern (1610 - 1686). If Dietz is to
be believed, then Suesskind was born 9 years before his grandfather was
When it comes to Dietz, "trust with verification"
I believe that Suesskind's pedigree has been put on JGFF.
