This chapter shows how German Jewish families underwent great change in the 19th century. In the early 19th century, there was still much overcrowding, many absent fathers, and many household members not part of the nuclear family to be found. With increasing urbanization, improving economic conditions, and the slow diminution of itinerant occupations, German-Jewish families increasingly adopted the traits and values of bourgeois German families.
