Gessel/Hessel. Could definitely be the same name. H is often rendered as a G in
Russian, i.e German for Herman. K is also possible as the Russian equivalent for
an H sound is transliterated as Kh.

On certain records for an ancestor it says Gessel or Hessel (sometimes
with only one 's'). But then we encountered records that say Kushel.

Could these three options be the same name/person?
