A study of the roots of the Jewish family - a collection of issues. Berlin, 1925-1929

13 issues of the Jüdische Familien-Forschung - The Study of the Jewish Family - issues dealing with the Jewish family, its roots, and its ramifications - The Jewish research used by the Nazis against the Jews themselves. Berlin 1925-1929 (discontinuous issues).

The Gesellschaft für die Jüdische Familien-Forschung ("Jewish Family Research Society"), founded in 1924, began publishing the pamphlet, which aimed to connect Jewish genealogists and provide a platform for their research into the roots of German Jewish families. The editor of the issue, the ophthalmologist Arthur Czellitzer (1871-1943), believed that exposing the Jewish family lineage was especially important to the Jewish people. Since at that time he had no state, and most of the Jews did not speak Hebrew or any other language that would unite them, Czellitzer sought what would unite the Jews on a genealogical basis (as he writes in his preface to the first issue of 1924). Each issue deals with the history of the Jewish family and its origins according to the family names, and extensive information in its possession. Also in the issues appeared an 'supplement' known as "Suchblatt" in which the readers themselves participated in the writing and sent to the system the result of their research. The company published a total of 50 issues between the years 1924-1938. A title page with the names of the tribes of Israel appears on the covers of all issues.

Tragically, because dozens of Jewish surnames appeared in the various issues, as well as their origins and migration in various countries, and the whereabouts of families all over the world during the reign of Nazi Germany, The Nazis, who ordered to stop its distribution, took advantage of the large amount of information that appeared in them to persecute and murder the German Jews. Chelitzer himself was murdered in the Sobibor death camp.
