Surnames: Bell,
Hello, we may be related. My great grandfather was also William Bell who eventually migrated to NZ from Prussia. I have been trying to find out more about him, and am wondering about a Jewish connection.

I have a copy of an old photo of him, his father and some children in NZ - one of whom is my great grandmother, Matilda. The mens' costumes, hats and beards have always intrigued me - I grew up being told they were Germans but they definitely don't look German! Jewish perhaps, and/or maybe Eastern European.

I would love to hear from you, and any information you have found out about William Bell.
