The Berenblut family research history


In January 1999 I visited Antwerp, Belgium, only then for the first time I heard about the existence of a family branch in Paris France.
Now we had 3 Berenblut (or Berenblit) branches; From Antwerp, London and Paris, but no one could tell me how they are all related.

Only in June 2005 I finally collected enough documents from Warsaw and Lublin, via the great work done by jri-pl, which shed new light on our family connection.
I finally found the names of our common ancestors
Icek & Elka, born around 1805, who unite the three branches of the family into one family.
In 2008 I found a few more descendants of Avram Hersz and Ides Berenblut in Warszawa.
It was only in 2009 that I located the Jablonski branch from Paris, France, and together with them we were able to add a new Branch (Branch-4).

In a separate page I list a few families from the Warsaw area which are yet unconnected to ours.

Meaning of the Berenblut (or Bernblut) Family name: The exact meaning is Bloom of a Pear tree. The Berenblit (or Berenblitt) variant of the name probably stem from the fact that in Russian the letter U is pronounced as I (Russia occupied Poland from 1864 till 1918). Our family are Cohanim, so it is not confused with the Berenblat family which are usually not Cohanim (although miss-spelling from Berenblut to Berenblat is quite common).
