==If he was a Levi, so would his father, sons and brothers; it's hereditary.
We, the BERNETs, a name borne by no other Jewish family, are also Levites,
originating >from the area of Bamberg, Bavaria. We know that some members of
the family went to Eastern Canada in the late 19th century. What do you know
of the history of Bernat Segal?
