Family News in 1999:
12/20/1999 Updated the Vienna Steinschneiders outline
report with new data from Helga Köplinger. Also, from now on, when
deportation date and/or destination are known, the information will be
included in the outline tree.
12/05/1999 Added a comprehensive update to the Rabbi Gabriel
Steinschneider outline report (Lineage
1). Thanks to Erich Lewitus (descendant of Gabriel Steinschneider) and his
connection at the Czech Archives, we have been able to corroborate information
that had originally been passed down to us by Pierre Séguy (Otto
Steinschneider) from Marie-Louise Steinschneider. We have also found and
included a cornucopia of additional data.
11/09/1999 Today we were contacted by Hans-Joachim Goldschmidt from
Berlin, Germany. His family represents a branch of the Prossnitz
Steinschneiders, descended from Aaron Steinschneider, on which I have only
limited information. Hopefully, with Hans-Joachim's help, we will be able to
connect his Steinschneiders to one of our other larger lines. A new
Steinschneider/Goldschmidt/Ehrenstamm outline, which shows
information acquired by my sister Isabelle Steinschneider at the Leo Baeck
Library; 129 E. 73rd Street; in New York City 10021, can be found in a new outline
10/29/1999 Spoke to Robin Steinshnider of Texas tonight. Thanks to SL
Higginbottom, we have discovered another line of Russian Steinschneiders. A
new outline has been added with information

Steinschneider spelling). More information on this new part of "the
family" will be posted shortly.

Steinschneider sent to me by Erich Lewitus.

appears to be a family or town gathering.

Brammer, the wife of Gabriel Steinschneider, with her daughters, Elsa,

Erich Lewitus for the picture. Erich's own genealogical website can be
accessed by going here.
09/28/1999 The descendants of Gabriel Steinschneider, who had been in a
separate outline report, have now been combined into Outline
1. Thanks to Marie-Louise Steinschneider's book Moritz Steinschneider:
Briefwechsel mit seiner Verlobten Auguste Auerbach 1845-1849 we were able
to confirm that Moritz Steinschneider had a brother named Gabriel. Additional
information on the descendants of Gabriel can be found at Erich Lewitus' website.
