I am not aware of any connection to the famous Hillel Zeitlin, but of course, its always possible. I don't have a whole lot of information on my family from that generation.

I don't recognize any of the names you mentioned. However, if you do'nt mind sharing a little more info about your family tree and Hillel's family, I would be very interested to see that.

I"m not really sure exactly where my Zeitlins are from, as I've had many leads to different locations. The only thing I know for sure is that there was a census record of my greag-great grandfather in Kovno in the 1880s married to his 2nd wife and with his first 2 children. I've heard possiblities of Minsk, Schklov and other areas in Belarus or Ukraine, but have no proof of anything.

Anyway, I would love to hear more about your family. Feel free to email me separately if you wish at
