Scope and Content Note From the Collection: The Tuchmann Family Collection contains a family chronicle and related family trees assembled in the early twentieth century for the Tuchmann Family, its relations, and other Jewish families from the region around Nuremberg. In addition to genealogy, there are three short autobiographical memoirs, a substantial number of family papers including architectural drawings, some correspondence and photos, and finally a large number of papers pertaining to the family's restitution claims after World War II.

Folder 8, Tuchmann family papers, contains funeral programs and speeches for several family members, as well as a number of documents regarding taxation and financial affairs of the family and their firm S. Tuchmann und Söhne. These latter papers include a copy of Salomon Tuchmann's will which established a family foundation. There are also postwar documents regarding the sale of their property in Nuremberg, and several certificates, some signed by crown prince Luitpold of Bavaria, demonstrating the engagement of various family members, especially Ernst Tuchmann, in civic affairs and institutions in Nuremberg and Bavaria.

The Jung family papers (folder 9) document the piece goods business of Samuel Jung in Obernbreit, Bavaria in the mid-19th century, and the activities of his descendents, especially Richard Jung, lawyer in Nuremberg active in social services who emigrated to New York at the end of the 1930s. The papers include a Samuel Jung's certificate for the completion of vocational training and various permits related to his textile business. The bulk of these papers, however, belong to Richard Jung, and include citizenship and inheritance papers, certificates and awards for service in the first World War, and certificates pertaining to membership in the local bar association. His later papers document the seizure of his assets by the National Socialist government and also include letters of recommendation used to secure employment after emigrating to the United States.

The other materials in this collection include architectural drawings and records from the postwar period related to the Tuchmanns' property on Gleisbühlstrasse in Nuremberg, family correspondence largely in regards to genealogy, a large amount of documents and correspondence regarding restitution claims, and some notes and clippings on the history of the Jewish community of Nuremberg.
