research includes most of the Jewish Heitlingers I have
been able to discover. Some
practiced their hereditary Jewish faith, some went another way. It
does not appear there is a close relationship with the Catholic Heitlingers
of Baden, Germany and I have not listed the genealogy
of that group of Heitlingers
here. Should you be interested in that line I'd suggest contacting Louis
Where are the Heitlingers from?
The modern names for the countries where I have found
Heitlingers include the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary,
Older names for these countries areas include Bohemia, Moravia,
Silesia, Galicia, and Saros. Place names changed often
as the language of the dominant rulers changed.
few Heitlingers left Europe before 1920. A few more either
left Europe just before the deportations of the Nazi
Holocaust began or survived in Europe.
It appears that most Heitlingers perished in the Holocaust. Those Heitlingers
that survived and their descendants can now be found in the United
States of America, England, Australia, Israel, the Czech Republic, Slovakia,
Family Trees & Other
The Family Trees are truncated so as to not include
younger members of the families.
I suspect that several,or all, of
the families are related. Unfortunately the reseach is difficult
for many reasons.
