Micha Reisel

Dear Genners,
According to family lore my Pggm Lea Reisel born Kaplan, was
the aunt of Charlie Chaplins father, making my father the second cousin to
Charlie himself.
I know that most sources deny that the Chaplins were Jewish, but
I am trying to ascertain if someone knows where in Lithuania the
Chaplins came >from and if their name was Kaplan before becoming Chaplin

Take care,

Micha Reisel, Hod HaSharon, Israel
Searching for: Lithuania: REISEL >from Shaki, SMOLIZANSKI >from Kalvarija.
Belarus: WIGDOROWITZ (VIGDOROVICH) >from Ostrina.
