Census records say her name was Grunvald. The Divrei Chaim, R. Chaim Halberstam, of Nowy Sacz, made the shidduch (match). They supposedly had 7 sons and 3 daughters. Of them, six were known.

I am currently pursuing several leads regarding other branches of this Miller family tree. Some of the most promising concern Kahan, Brand, Raab, and several Miller families. Please see my broken branches section.

Please note: Many family members bear spelling variations of the name Miller. The Yiddish was Miller. However, the legal name was often Müller (with an umlaut). Do not discount the possibility of a connection based on the spelling of the name.


I would be very interested to hear from anyone with knowledge or an interest in the Miller family.
