According to Hana Shaf-Brener, there were three Ivel families in Skuodas:

  • A widow, Gita Ivel, who was a merchant and matzo-baker, had four adult children: Yitzak, Nachum, and two unnamed children. Gita was married to Chaim (maybe a second marriage?).
  • A widow, Chana Ita Ivel, had two daughters, Sarah and Mara. (The father of both daughters is given as Rivka, obviously an error.)
  • A couple, Aharon (who may be “our” Gita’s son) and his unnamed wife, who moved from Shkud to Shavel (Sauliai). They had a three-year-old son, Yisroel Shrulik, who attempted to escape during the Children’s Action in the Sauliai Ghetto.

Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Necrology database lists three Ivels from Skuodas: Yitzkak, Chana Ita, and Tova. Possibly Tova was Gita’s daughter. As of October 2013, Jewish Gen provides no information on any of the above members of the Ivel family in either Skuodas or Sauliai. Members of the Abel, Opal, and Eppel families do appear (these may be variants of Ivel), but I could find no definite matches with the names above.

As of October 2013, Yad Vashem provides no information on the Ivel family (or its variants) in Skuodas.
