I am looking for information on the Rejszel/Reiszel family... this is what I have...
They had three farms in Poland/Belarus. They were Catholic.
They say they were from Miestuny (Meshtuneck?). It could even be a town called Brestavichany (spelling?)? Walenty later lived in Belarus, Grodno Gov.
I had some recent information that this Miesztuny was near Grodno in Belarus once, in the Polish district of .
Pawel Rejszel - born about 1860?
Stefania Kuratczyk - ? (spelling)

Walenty - born 1887?, died (Poland)

Boleslaw left Poland in 1912 from Latvia.
Fabjan left Poland in 1928 from Danzig.
Hanulah left Poland about 1914.
Hannulah married a Jozef Crzencho in Poland. (spelling?)
Walerja married a ______ Jalowczyk in Poland. (spelling?)
