MEISELS family name from Hungary #hungary


David Grosz
 

I have recently done a DNA test on Ancestry and whilst it added a lot of confusion to my research by highlighting more than 160,000 connections, it identified one person who is close to me but a rather distant cousin and it has identified a name in common between us and some other DNA connections we have in common.  The family’s name MEISELS is the name that seems to be the name in common.  One person in common is Szeren MEISELS born in 1888 and her father was Marton MEISELS.  The other part of puzzle is Edith MEISELS born in 1892 and her father was William MEISELS born in 1861.  If anyone has some clues or other pieces to the jigsaw, your assistance would be most appreciated.

Thank you.
