This family tree has been gathered thanks to both research and traditions (familial, Jewish, French…). I cannot guarantee that all the informations are true, especially for older genealogies.
Sometimes the “traditional” dates can seem strange or even contradictory, but I will not change them before finding reliable information (tradition is better than estimation! - although missing generations have been estimated). If you can help, please do!
I want to thank everyone that has helped in a way or another, and would be happy to receive a mail from any (even distant!) relative or anyone having a question or more informations about anything on this tree.
Last thing, a “?” materializes a missing first name or full name. For example, “?” will materialize a missing generation, and “? Sztern” an unknown Sztern.
My family tree is not online yet, but do come back often!
I'm particularly looking for any information about the following families:
- Mazaltov / Maseltov... from anywhere, especially Greece, Turkey, Italy, Spain and the Ottoman Empire.
- Handkan / Gendkin ... from Poland or Russia, Khazar origins

Please, if you recognize your name or one of your ancestors’ name, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll be more than happy to find another cousin. :)
