  Schmieheim Databases

Two very powerful Schmeiheim research tools can help you find out information about your Schmieheim relatives:

  • the Schmieheim Ortssippenbuch printed records, where you can very likely find your Schmieheim ancestors from the 18th century up to about 1930
  • the on-line Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg records, which contains original hand-written birth, marriage and death records for Schmieheim in two volumes 1819-1843 and 1844-1870.  I have had great success with both of these, although they may pose challenges to beginners.  Help can be obtained from me.  See the Research Tools.
Another powerful database is the set of two printed volumes of  Der juedische Friedhof in Schmieheim by Naftali Bar-Giora Bamberger.  This is discussed under Books.
Links for other databases are all conveniently found together on the Jewishgen Locality Page for Schmieheim.
