About Breindel Landau

Was not the daughter of any of the Menachem Mendel of Korotschins as per early versions of the tree. Ezekiel Landau is recorded as a brother in law of Avigdor of Chentschin. This was previously understood to mean that Ezekiel was the son in law of Avigdor's father i.e. Menachem Mendel. However the correct understanding evident in the book תבנית אות יוסף is that Avigdor married Ezekiel's sister.

The only alternative version recorded is that she was called Breindel and was the daughter of Maharam Zusskind of Lublin. This is the current Geni view.

(NOTE: There were three Menachem Mendel of Krotoschins.

  1. Rabbi Menachem Mendel Auerbach , author of "Ateret Zekenim"
  2. R' Menachem Mendel Auerbach (the Younger), A.B.D. Krotoschin
  3. R' Menachem Mendel Margaliyot A.B.D. Krotoszyn

R' Ezekiel Landau lived between 1687 and 1747. It therefore seems that the correct father in law was R' Menachem Mendel Margaliyot A.B.D. Krotoszyn. He was too young to be son in law of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Auerbach , author of "Ateret Zekenim" and too old to be son in law of R' Menachem Mendel Auerbach (the Younger), A.B.D. Krotoschin. The date of death of R' Menachem Mendel Margaliyot A.B.D. Krotoszyn has been taken from his tombstone inscription.)
