Mahl Family Genealogy

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Mahl family lived in Zamosc, Poland. The family was Jewish and Orthodox.

Zysman Mahl is the first recorded ancestor. The name Zisman is Yiddish and derives from Sussman, which means "sweet man".

The family originated in Austrian Galicia, which now consists largely of southern Poland and the Ukraine. The town of origin is listed in a marriage document, and my best translation of the village is Lednica, Galicia.

The family migrated from their original place of origin to Zamosc between 1819 and 1824.

LEDNICA, AUSTRIAN GALICIA

Lednica Gorna is a village in the administrative district of Wieliczka, within Wieliczka County, Lesser Poland Voivodeship, in southern Poland. It lies approximately 3 km. south-east of Wieliczka and 15 km. south-east of the regional capital Krakow. The current population is around 1,300 inhabitants. A history of the village is available online. An old map of Austrian Galicia shows Lednica on the map at C3. The old part of the village is called Mierzączka.

SURNAME ORIGINS

The name has German origins. It's either 1) a topographic name for someone who lived at a mill, or 2) a metonymic occupational name for a miller or mill worker. It was also spelled "Majl" in Poland.
