inconsistent Levite status? #rabbinic


Judith Goldsmith
 

Hello,
I have been researching my Geiger line for many years. I am puzzled by an
inconsistency I found on Geiger matsevahs. My great uncle Charles Geiger's
matsevah indicates that he was a Levite. Yet this designation was not on
matsevahs for his father Aron Geiger, nor for his brothers Chaim Yehuda
Geiger and Abraham Geiger, nor for his cousin Yechezkeil Geiger. Was Charles
mistaken? Aron, Abraham, and Yechezkeil were all rabbis. Can anyone help me
with this puzzle? Thank you.
