Samuel Löb Grünbaum from Adelsberg was a well known circumciser in his area; He circumcised about 455 boys in the years of 1802 to 1857.

He took notes for each of the events inside a thick book.

Samuel's book (written in Hebrew) was well preserved; It is now kept and exhibited in The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem (CAHJP) http://sites.huji.ac.il/cahjp/

He may have circumcised more children who were not registered in his book. I guess we will never know

The town he used to work in were:

  • Gemunden
  • Mittelsinn
  • Burgsinn
  • Hessdorf
  • Zeitlofs
  • Adelsberg
  • Reineck
  • Weisenfeld
  • Hollnich
  • Hettenshausen
  • Züntersbach
  • Lohrhaupten
  • Heubach
  • Steinbach
  • Altengronau
  • Sterbfritz
  • Alsburg
  • Laudenbach
  • Völkersleier
  • Thüngen
  • Schlüchtern
  • Arnstein
  • Dittlofsroda
  • Höllrich

It took many years to index the people as we don't have the full population registries of all the towns and we barely have information about the years before 1817. All the pages are now online on the photos section. As time goes by I will try to tag on Geni all the people that I was able to identify and double match with other resources. Everyone is invited to help. I will also upload an index once it's ready.
