Hi Michiel,
I'm glad i found your post. I never got information from that anyone answered my original post. I'm fairly certain you are aware of the book "Die Judische Gemeinde Von Raesfeld." Please pardon if I spelled any of that incorrectly. I do not read German well, but in looking at the family trees in the book (I only have seen the book online) they don't have anything before Abraham Moises. In the book it does show a more extensive tree for his wife, Fratchen Jost. I am descended from Abraham schwarz's second wife, Jette Moises Elkan. But we are still related. Abraham Moises is my great-great-great grandfather. And Jette Elkan is my ex great grandmother. Have you done DNA. it would be interesting to see if that small amount of DNA shows. Though it's far back, we are family! My great grandmother was Rosa Schwarz, daughter of Jette Moises Elkan and Abraham Schwarz. My email is
