As it is already late I translated/summed up the main points of the letter for you:

- Found data through the Jewish Communities in Affaltrach, Eschenau und Lehren

- the person writing can not give you further information about where the Kaufmann family moved to, but also says that the archive in Stuttgart most likely has some more information about the communities

- mentioned that the problems here is that you also have to know the names of the husbands of the female family members in order to find information ( the maiden names of women apparently can not be found in those specific registers

- the person mentions that they found some information in regards to Salomo Kaufmann (at the same time it was emphasized that they were not sure, if he was related to your ancestors)

- what makes the research problematic is that Jewish people only had to carry a last name from 1828 on (also it was mentioned that in smaller communities the law was only carried out years later)

- it was mentioned that photocopies of headstones were sent with the letter (also it was said that some of the really old headstones were removed or are not readable anymore)

The couple writing you the letter further wished you Happy Passover.

Please let me know, if you still require a full translation.

Warm regards from Ireland,

Sarah
