German-Jewish SIG. The special interest group for researching Jewish genealogy in Germany and German-speaking areas of Alsace, Lorraine, Switzerland, and Poland.

Altdorf KehilaLinks Site. Altdorf was one of the nearby Jewish towns with the community cemetery.  Many families in Schmieheim had connections to Altdorf.

International Jewish Cemetery Project - Schmieheim   Contains additional information and references to additional books.  Includes information on some of the communities in the area served by the Schmieheim cemetery.  Some parts appear to be translated from German to English but are confusing.

Translation Tool This is a good translation tool for either selected text or for entire website (just type in the URL of the website you wish to translate).  You can even get additional words when a German word can have more than one translation in English.  Be very careful with any translation tool since German word order differs significantly from English.
