Gerrit, Maarten,
I should have thought about the validity of my path statement a  
little longer.
It works fine now with
\bibliography{Bibliography} after I had put the link to the above  
location into /Library/texmf/bibtex/bib/
I make backups of the entire drive and have not thought of backing up  
Library separately which would secure, as you say, mail messages AND  
the bib file in one go. I wonder about your backup policy, what do  
you do ?
Thanks to both of you.

The tilde ~ is shorthand for the home directory, in your case, /Users/ 
winfried. So currently, you're telling BibTeX to look for a folder  
called "Users" inside your home directory.
Try either ~/Documents/Bibliography/Bibliography or  /Users/winfried/ 
Documents/Bibliography/Bibliography (without the tilde).
Good luck,
