The Miller Family; Broken Miller Branches
The following is a list of Miller branches, and in some cases, just leaves, that have fallen from our tree. They are known to be related, but in most cases, the exact connection is no longer known.
A Miller branch is from Belarus.
Samuel Müller was born in Korotichi, Belarus, on March 23, 1897. Korotichi was a very small town. It is 101 kilometers East of Pinsk. He married Chaya Weinreb, of Erfurt, Germany. They lived in Cologne, Germany, where they raised a family. They were last known to have been in Gorlice, Poland, during the war. They never returned. Chaskel Stengal gave me their pictures. He took the pictures from the police station in Gorlice, right after the war. I have written to Korotichi and Cologne. The officials at Cologne said there were no records of the Müller's. The Korotichi archives are in Minsk. They wanted an awful lot of money, just to see if they had any records from 1897. I have not pursued this further at this time.

to resolve any of the issues.

I am being told (by Mr. Louis Schonfeld) of the existence of a discussion group for people who research after descendants of the Bnay Yissachar Zatsa"l.Could you please give me more information on the purpose of the discussion group. I am a grandson of the grandson of Yitschak Kallech who was a grandson of Yaakov Uri who was a grandson of the Bnay Yissachar Zatsa"l. By the way,I saw on your site that the name Avrohm Abba Miller is being mentioned. I am from my mother's site a descendant of Timberg whose family originally comes from Krakow,Poland and lived afterwards in the Netherlands/Belgium. In the Timberg family you find a few Abraham Abba's. May be the name comes originally from the same roots as the name of Avrohm Abba Miller comes? With Friendly Regards, Gershon Lehrer, Machon Lev, Jerushalayim, Erets Israel _________________________________________________________________ Date: Wed, 23 Feb 2000 23:53:24 -0500 To: gershon lehrer
Recently, I was at Klezkamp (that is a camp of Yiddish music and culture) and there was a musician there named Perry Sokolow. Anyway, he was wearing a kippah that said "Pesach Dovid" so based on what you said on the web site and went up to him and asked if maybe we were related. He said that a man named "Pesach Dovid Miller" had once asked him the same question (is this your brother? or cousin?) and that he was born on Pesach and his mother liked the name Dovid, so no there was no relationship.

I know very little about my father's family. My father is 80 years old and does not remember many things, his brother, who still alive is even older. My father is Moshe Aharon Rebhun, he was born on 4.8.1919 in Nowy Sacz, Poland.They moved to Krakow at about 1920. His father name was Chune Keller. Latter the last name of Chune's children was chanced to Wagschal, my father's mother maiden name. According to my father the name was chanced because his parents were married only by Jewish marriage. Latter on the last name was chanced to Rebhun, supposedly the last name of Chune Keller mother. I do not know any further details about Chune Keller, not his parents names and not if he had brothers or sisters. Attached hereinbelow please find some data from the Family Tree. Best Regards. Should I find more info I shall certainly transfer this to you. Please do same to me. Zviya Parnes (Rebhun). Descendants of Chune (Rabbi Chanan) KELLER Generation No. 1 1. Chune (Rabbi Chanan)2 KELLER (KELLER-REBHUN1)1 my father told me that he was born in Mielec, POLAND according to my uncle Yitzchak (Iczek) Meir REBHUN he was born in Brzesko. He married Beila Dvora WAGSCHAL, daughter of Chief Rabbi WAGSCHAL. Chune, Beile and Taube were shot by the Germans. It might be that Dvora Beila Wagschal is one of the daughters of Israel Wagschal from Frysztak, Krosno, Lwow. Hence Itzchak Wagschal who served there as Av Beit Din at the beginning of the 19th century, than his son Yechiel Wagschal (1821-1883) Ch. Rabbi, his son Israel Wagschal.

Through him or through his wife (?) Czarna I am probably related to rabbi Elimelech from Lezjansk. Do you know anything about this? How are you related to the Rebhuns? I am from Przemysl, Poland. I would appreciate a speedy reply. Please direct your answer to JRebhun@Worldnet.att.net This letter comes to you from the address of a friend, Auke@aol.com but please answer to my own address. Thank you very much, Joseph Rebhun

I don't know anything about the Millers, but my grandfather Samuel Rebhun was from Galicia. Could he have been a relative of the Rebhuns in your family tree?

This is a letter I received from Prof. Dan Hirschberg:
To: firstname.lastname@example.org From: email@example.com Subject: REBHUN DeliveredDate: 03/07/99 06:38:05 PM > All 3 please. Will do so. I expect to put them in the mail Monday afternoon. In looking at the JewishGen Family Finder, I noticed that you have research interest in REBHUN. My understanding is that Benjamin STERN (father of Moses STERN, who was my mother's father) had a sister, Malka STERN, who was married to a REBHUN. Malka had children Yankl (who married Lola) and another son (who married Ruth). Ruth had a couple of daughters: Rachel (who married TAUBER) and Esther (who married BRAUNSTEIN), both of whom lived in Brooklyn as of 10 years ago. Any additional information that you might have about the REBHUN family tree would be most welcome. It would be wonderful if there was overlap between the REBHUNs that I know about and those of whom you have knowledge.

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to you. I looked at your website and forwarded the info to my cousin who was born in Przemysl. He reviewed the names and doesn't recognize any of them but the towns were very close. I am meeting with another cousin, Albert Rebhun also of Los Angeles this weekend. I will show him the info also and see if he recongnizes any connection. Do you know about the Rebhun/Rebhan family book self-published about 20 years ago in Georgia? I have seen a few pages of it and somehow must be related. I was told all REBHUN'S are related. My grandfather, Irving Rebhun came from Rozwadow and Tarnow Poland. He came to New York in 1926. I think his brother Efraim survived but haven't researched that yet. Please be in contact. By the way, where do you live?
