About Liba Gittel Shnitzler
Managers of Liba Gittel Shnitzler,
I am contacting you about this profile: Liba Gittel Shnitzler. Liba Gittel Schnitzler was definitely not the daughter of Shmuel Shmelke of Nikolsburg. Even according to those who claim the Schnitzlers descend from Shmuel Shmelke of Nikolsburg she was the mother of Baruch Derecske Schnitzler and the wife of Yoel Katoer Schnitzler who was the son of Baruch of Kaliv who was married to an un identified daughter of Shmuel Shmelke of Nikolsburg. According to Neil Rosenstein there is no evidence at all of this connection to Shmuel Shmelke. In another place I saw that Baruch of Kaliv may have been a son in law of Tzvi Yehoshua Horowitz, the son of Shmuel Shmelka. The dates are more plausible that way, the problem I have with that is that Tzvi Yehoshua was the son in law of his uncle the Bal Hafloa and Schnitzler family tradition makes no mention of descent from both great brothers, only from Shmiel Shmelke.
