My reinheimers are from Germany, from Beerfelden in Hessen to be exact. We are Jewish. My g-gradmother was Rebecka Reinheimer (1849-1894) I was able to get her birth certificate 2 years ago and that gave me the name of her father, Benjamin. We have not found a birth or marriage record for him, but Beerfelden gave me the names of their 6 children (my g-grandmother's siblings and their dates of birth.) I have recently found some Reinheimer descendants. But our Reinheimers did not come to the US until they had to escape the Nazis in the 1930s. From cousins I recently found- they came to NY/NJ, and some to Nashville.
