Tesler and related surnames

Here is a map showing some towns in Ukraine and surrounds where Jewish Teslers lived.


Note added 9-Oct-2004. We have proven by DNA analysis that five Teslers from different towns on this map are unrelated.

Note added 6-Nov-2009. The aforesaid analysis used Y-DNA and done at the FamilyTreeDNA service. It proved that no two participating Teslers had a common patrilineal ancestor in the past several hundred years, at least. Jews did not take surnames in the indicate countries until about 1800.
