As I have WISSOTSKY ancestors and cousins who said that we were perhaps
related to the WISSOTSKYs of the tea, I did some research.
As far as I could know, we are not related, but I got a lot of information.
First, not very far: in the Encyclopedia Judaica, you can find Kalonymus
WISSOTSKY born 1824 in Zhagare, died in 1904.
Merchant, philanthropist, he developed the tea firm in Moscow. His entire
share in the Wissotsky firm was given to charity.
His son David was a banker and came to Paris (I met descendants). His wife
was Anna ZACKEIM.
