This is a document relating to a Synagogue seat in Hranice. On the right hand side page there are several names. I am particularly interested to know what is the relationship between them. Is Sigmund related to Jakob Israel (My GGGGGF)? how? Are there any detailed about the people mentioned? also if possible who are the Wolfs mentioned on the left hand page and is there any relationship between them. thank you!

3/23/2019 12:36 PM I'm not sure how the left side connects to the right, since on the bottom of the left page it says it is continued on page 253. So I'm trying to give the content of each page - the meaning of which is not necessarily clear to me.

left, left column:
seat no.13 seems to be owned by Moses Kafka and after the death of Sara Kafka, Jochim Wolf inherited half of it and from his father Benjamin Wolf in 1825. In 1833 Wolf Isak seems to have inherited the seat.
The middle column mentions a Gerson Perl, and some bancruptcy in 1829 (of Moses Kafka?) and Moses' wife Maria.

right page, left column.
Jakob Israel Wolf is owner of seat 13; Moses Kafka becomes owner (1818?) through the guardianship; in 1836 Siegmund Wolf bought the seat from Moses Kafka. 1839 Maria Wolf received the seat from her husband Siegmund.
middle column:
Maria Kafka, wife of Moses was nee Reinitz.
right column:
Maria Kafka owed 200f to the heirs of Johanna Schenk (a sister?)
