OUR SOCIETY'S LIFE

FAMILIES

Claudie and Jacques Blamont have researched Charles Valentin Alkan's
paternal and maternal ancestors. Thereby they complement and specify the
information provided as yet by the various musicologists who have written
about this piano virtuoso (Paris 1813 - 1888).



Pascal Faustini draws on his knowledge of the Koblenz Memorbuch to provide details about the families Lahnstein and Bernkastel. These families appear on the Metz registre de bourgeoisie (census of Jews authorized to live in the town) in 1665.


Philippe Danan recalls Adolphe Crémieux (Nîmes 1796 - Paris 1880), French politician, minister and senator. During a debate about the Jews in Algeria, he stresses the patriotism of 17 Jews of Alsace Lorraine who in Pernambouc (Brazil) in 1871 signed a petitition showing their patriotism which can be compared to this of Jews in Algeria. A trial is made to identify those
who signed.
