The following information is the result of research I conducted about my grandmother, Rivka Frieda (Herszkowicz) Berenblut's  maternal family.

I started with my grandmother's parents, Miriam (Mejzels) and Shmuel Herszkowicz, who immigrated from Lodz, Poland to Antwerp, Belgium, in 1892.

We knew that Miriam's mother was Sara (Sura Ruchel), but that was all we knew.

During my visit to Antwerp (in January 1999) I visited the cemetery in Putte, Holland (where Antwerp's Jews are buried), and found Sara's grave. I also happened to come across another Mejzel's grave, then unfamiliar to me. It turned out to be the grave of Sara's Husband, Menachem Mendel Mejzel.

Using the newly discovered names of their (Sara and Menachem Mendel) fathers which I found on their headstones, and with the aid of Jewish Records Indexing Poland I was fortunate to be able to trace the entire family back to the early 1800's, which appears further down on this page. No records were kept in Poland prior to 1809.

I obtained many birth, marriage and death registrations of previously unknown members of our family, which enabled me to build the Family Tree. Next to each family member I marked which registration certificates I found.
I will be happy to provide free copies upon request
.
If you are in possession of documents not shown here, please send me a copy.
Thank you, Shmuel
.

From all these registration certificates it became obvious that the family name is spelled many different ways: Majzel or Majzels,  Mejzel or Mejzels and more. 

There are two noteworthy items:
1. Our g-g-grandfather, Meszulam Mejzels, was married three times:
       The first two times he married two sisters, the third time with his niece, Hinda Beyla Mejzels.
2. His son, our g-grandfather, Menachem Mendel Mejzels, married his step-niece Sura Ruchel Mejzels.

These two points complicate the family relations within the family.

Our family is not connected to the family of Rabbi Eliyahu Chaim.
For the Rabbi's family, please refer to a separate tree.

 UNCONNECTED Families
At the bottom of the page I added Mejzel(s) families from the same geographical area in Poland which I was not yet able to connect to our family.
