Development of the Jewish Community

The following chart is an attempt to trace the lineage of Muttersdorf residents from the patronymic period up to the adoption of surnames. The basis for the column placement of names is based primarily on patronyms and, to a lesser extent, on ages, where they are known. As new information becomes available, this chart will be updated and, hopefully, become increasingly more accurate.

In the 1724 census, there are 6 heads of family listed in Muttersdorf (not yet connected to any of the individuals below):
Jacob Scheuer, Isac Scheuer, David Scheuer, Ozar Lowe, Lazarus Lowe, Jacob Scheuer
