the same name .Does anyone have an email address for him . >>
==Suessel and Suesslein were very popular first names among European Jews in
past centuries. My oldest known ancestor in the direct male line (b. ca.
1650) was Suesse Hirsch, and his children used the patronymic Suesslein.
This went on for quite a few generations, but none of the descendants took on
that name as a family name when these were required in ca 1810.
In my family, Suessel/Suesslein was aparently a kinnuy for Shim`on (Simon). I
would imagine that there were many SUSSEL families throughout Europe in the
19th century who were not related to others.
