One of my hobbies is researching my family tree. As of March 2018 I have found over 200 ancestors and over 18,000 relatives.
My mother's family comes from southern Germany (Baden-Wuerttemberg and Bayern).
My father's family comes from various towns in Eastern Europe, many by way of England.
Please contact me
if you are researching any of the surnames or towns on the following pages.

Odentz is not actually the name of one of my ancestors, but the surname of the husband of one of my great-grandmothers' sisters. I include that name because I have such little information about my Lithuanian ancestors.
Spira is spelled many different ways including Spiro, Shapira, and Shapiro. This family is one of the Spira rabbinic dynasties.
This page was created on January 18, 2001. It was last updated on January 4, 2004. I will not post update dates on pages for individuals towns.
Please note that my genealogy pages used to be mirrored at the two websites I had at geocities.com and hanoch.org. Now that I have my own domain I am only mainting this page on my domain evilsnake.com and have deleted the pages on those two sites.
