Dear Merav:

Sorry, no.

My "cheese" question was legitimate and was posted precisely because I
didn't know the relationship between the shape of the cheese and the
region, family background, etc. I posted that question a couple of years
ago and got no meaningful answers. This time I got several meaningful
answers, the gist of which is the shape of the cheese doesn't correlate
with the region or family background but does correlate with the shape of
the cheesecloth that cheese maker arbitrarily chooses to use.

There are all sorts of cultural facts that help genealogists learn about
their ancestors. I conclude though, thanks to the responses to my query,
that cheese shape isn't one of them
