  • Trace migration of every Munitz ancestral lineage from the XIX century Pale of Settlement to diasporas all over the world.
  • Identify major Munitz family lineages to assist future genealogists in their search for ancestors
  • Preserve the memory of Munitz Holocaust victims whose lineages seized to exist
  • Link every found and accessible archive document to their appropriate Munitz profile on WikiTree
  • In no way clash with ethical genealogical rules such as keeping Personally Identifiable Information about living individuals private
  • Use DNA results to advance our knowledge and to discover new cousins connections
  • Connect profiles to WikiTree's single family tree

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.


You came to the right place if you're researching the origins of Ashkenazi surname Munitz.

All of the above are confirmed spelling variations of the same Ashkenazi surname. DNA testing conclusively confirmed that Munitz families did not all come from the same single male ancestor. At this time there are at least three, and likely quite a few more distinct families with this surname.

Many of the Munitz families can trace their origins to a relatively small geographical area within the Pale of Settlement generally close to town of Braslav in present day Belarus.

Precise origins and meaning of the Munitz surname remain to be determined. In the meantime a group of generally unrelated Munitz individuals are working together to gather as much historical material about this surname as possible. We would be very happy to see you join the effort if you hold in an interest in finding more about Munitz people.

You can contact Patrick Munits through WikiTree or join us on Facebook Munitz Group.

At this time close to 500 open Munitz profiles have been added to WikiTree. Feel free to contribute and expand information at your own pace.


Munitz surname does not have a single historical patriarch. Y-DNA tests completed by three separate Munitz males belong to three distinct Haplogroups. Despite this significant difference many Munitz descendants are related as distant cousins because they share at least some common ancestors just not on the direct male line. This is evident by Autosomal DNA matches. Many Munitz people can trace some type of connection to the region of Braslav lakes in Belarus close to borders with Latvia, Lithuania, and Russia.

You should be able to find matching distant DNA cousins if you do a DNA test with any of the major consumer DNA testing companies. There are results that have been uploaded to FamilyTreeDNA, Ancenstry, MyHeritage, 23&Me, and GEDMatch.

Please feel free to reach out to admins of this project if you have any questions. We are eager to hear from you!


Добро пожаловать на страницу посвящённой изучению истоков фамилии Муниц.

Сверху можно увидеть варианты написания фамилии Муниц на разных языках, включая идиш, иврит, английский, французский, немецкий, латышский, литовский и дореформенный русский. Это всё уже доказанные варианты одной и той же фамилии. То есть есть официальные документы, где эти формы встречаются с одним и тем же индивидуалом.

ДНК тестирование уже доказало, что у разных семей Муниц не обязательно один общий предок. На данное время точно известно о трёх разных прародителях с этой одной фамилией.

Многие семьи Муниц могут провести свою родословную к довольно небольшой географической территории в Черте Оседлости. Наибольшая концентрация на данное время наблюдается вокруг городка Браслав в Белоруссии. Предполагается что получиться проследить связи к той местности даже для тех представителей фамилии Муниц которые вначале 20-го века уже оказались в таких далёких от Браслава местах как Питер, Москва, Иркутск, Нью Йорк, Филадельфия, и Огайо.

Если вы заинтересованы в фамилии Муниц, и возможно у вас есть какая-либо информация, которой вы можете поделиться, то мы будем рады если вы с нами свяжетесь. На связь можно выйти либо через мой профиль Патрик Муниц, либо заходите в группу Муниц на Facebook Munitz Group.

Пожалуйста, если у вас есть информация, то вы можете добавлять новые профили сами, или же редактировать уже созданные. Как всегда, проявляйте внимание с установками приватности, если вы вдруг решили добавить профили для живущих людей.

Я вас очень прошу поделиться со мной вашими знаниями о людях с фамилией Муниц. Даже если у вас не возможности или времени самим вносить информацию, то пожалуйста, свяжитесь со мной, и я радостью послушаю ваши рассказы. Затем, с вашего разрешения, я постараюсь увековечить память на этих страницах. Наши потомки будут вам благодарны! Я могу связаться с вами по почте, по телефону, по Скайпу, и т.д. Вам это будет стоить только немного вашего времени.

Research Notes

  • No Munitz families or persons are found in 1897 Russian Empire census for the shtetl of Glazmanka, which at the time had about 350 Jewish families.
  • No Munitz families or persons are found in 1897 Russian Empire census for the town of Tukkum (Courland governorate; Tukums, Latvia), which among its population counted several hundred Jews.

The list below is not complete. There are now over 500 Munitz (and various spelling variations) profiles on WikiTree.
