Dear Mr. Schlesinger,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Do you know which part of Germany they lived in? You may be able to locate records via local archives or historical societies. The JewishGen Germany Database would be a good place to start looking for records of your ancestors that might determine where they lived. Also, we suggest that you review the FamilySearch Research wikis under German Jewish Records. Especially under German Land and Property, as it may point you in the right direction for your research.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thanks, Vincent. I look forward to exploring those resources.

to get land records in Germany is not easy. Not everybody gets the information. One has to proofe a legitimate or justified interest. Since your family left Germany in the 1930 the records still might be in the Grundbuchamt of the area where the property was situated. The Grundbuchamt would be a part of the Amtsgericht in the District. Older records might be in State archives.
If you would like to provide the names and the places I maybe can help to locate where to find and ask for the records.
Thanks, Sabine. I didn't know about the Grundbuchamt and its role in Germany. Thank you for this lead.
