About Joseph Gugenheim

ou Josef Frankfurter ou Elijahu/Eliahu Gugenheim ou von Jugenheim

né vers 1560 selon certaines sources

Pascal Faustini from work done by John Berkowitch Articles published in "Cercle de Genealogie Juive"

Elie/Eliyahu Gugenheim

Mentionned in Fortune Tax Rolls in 1581, then diseapears several years when he lives in Jugenheim close to Mayence. In 1591, he is mentionned and represented by his brother Leib.

In 1598, the municipal registry mentions him as "Joseph von Jugenheim zur Flasche", brother of Abraham

Document: 10 Jul 1598, Chancery of Mayence:"Joseph, Jew of Jugenheim, jew protected by the count of Nasau-Sarrebruck" creditor of 2100 florins with his brothers "Abraham jew zur Flasche in frankfurt" and Leib, jew of the same place.

On 15 August 1614, sale of wine made by "Abraham, jew of frankfurt, son of Joseph, Jew of Jugenheim"

One bill mentions "Abraham jew "of" Jugenheim"

He is also mentionned by Shlomo Ettlinger as "Abraham son of Eliyahu Josef"

Ettlinger places the death of Joseph, with reservation, during the "Fettmilch" riots of 1614-1615

His widdow Beile is still mentionned on the lists in 1619 and dies in 1626

Ettlinger mentions in the Ele Toldot the known sons in frankfurt. The Memorbuch and the Grune buch of Worms allow us to add some more. The list is probably incomplete as we do not know any daughter.

The sons who stayed in Frankfurt bear the name of their house, but the Mayer in Bingen and Akiba in Worms will carry the name Gugenheim

As Maier, parnas in Bingen has no known son, his brother Akiba is the ancestor of the Gugenheim name in Worms, in Switzerland (Lengnau-Endingen), in Alsace and in Metz during the following centuries

Joseph Heinzelmann found the notarized documents.

In The Guggenheims The making of an american dynasty, Harvey O'Connor says (in 1937):

The pre-Guggenheims wandered fron city to city. Perhaps they stayed a while in th village of Guggenheimb, now called Jugenheim, on the Bergstrasse between Darmstadt and Heildelberg. Who can ever know? But the name, or its variants, Guggenheimer, Guckenheim, Guckenheimer, Gougenheim, stuck to "die Juden von Guggenheimb"
