In 1985, for reasons which have long escaped me, I approached my father with the aim of putting together our family tree.The information he passed on to me at that time varied in certainty but nevertheless we noted everything down and the 'not too sure' stuff we wrote in pencil. Although fairly detailed at the time, most of the information only related to my grandfather's brothers and sisters and their descendants who were mostly living in Australia in 1985. This version of the family tree was filed away and, apart from a Mlynarzewicz family reunion in 1990, was left mostly untouched for nearly 20 years.

In 2002 my father passed away. This was the stimulus I needed for the next quest of the family tree and which has led to the first version of the family website. In the second half of June 2002, I started extensive searches on the Internet on anything relating to Mlynarzewicz. These searches led to names of other Mlynarzewiczs around the world and, through the Jewish Records Indexing in Poland, I was also able to go further back in the family tree than my father knew about back in 1985.

Over the past few years I have been able to make contact, communicate and personally meet with other Mlynarzewicz families in Belgium, Mexico, Argentina, New Zeakand and USA. Via the USA family, I have also been able to contact several family branches in Israel of which I knew nothing about even though we lived in Israel until 1965. In most cases I also found that these families were the ones about which my father told me in 1985 and their details were recorded in pencil.

There is only one thing left to do with all this information - share it!

This has been the reason for establishing this web site which started off at about 600 entries and has reached 900 family members from all over the world. I have included in the family tree information which, in some cases, I was not too sure where it fits. There will be a lot of debate as to the accuracy of the data and the various relationships within the family tree and, as such, the website will be updated on a regular basis as new information comes to hand.

In the first couple of years I was working very closely with the family in the USA and an American genealogist. Lately, however, I have found contributions from Family world wide on an on going basis helping to keep the records updated while still seacrhing for any information from the distant past.

As a member of the Mlynarzewicz family, you are invited to comment and contribute; if you have information which is, missing, incorrectly recorded or you feel should be added to the family tree, please let me know and I would be more than pleased to add it to the site.

You are also welcome to send me photos of any individual/s to be included in the individual and family groups pages or historical photos and documents for the 'Albums' section. On the other hand if you prefer that any details relating to you are not included then I would delete them at your request. To contact me for any reason please click on the 'Contact Us' button.

This website is dedicated to my father Benjamin Miller (1909-2002) without whose contribution and inspiration would have never eventuated.

I now invite you to Discover Your Past...
