The oldest known relatives of this family are
Hersch Friedman, Isaac Labe Saidel and Baruch Saidel.
They were from Vabalnimnkas and Panevezys, Lithuania.
The Saidel family is related to the Friedman family.

"An orphan boy named HERSH ZAIDEL was brought to
Jerusalem Palestine in the middle of the 19th century
by a childless uncle Reb Hersh Friedman from Ponevezs,
Lithuania. Hersch Zaidels father's name was
Baruch Zaidel and his mother's name was Rivkah.
Hersch Zaidel adopted the surname of his Uncle;
hence Hersch Friedman.

 At the same time some good people brought to jerusalem
a little orphan girl of 9, Eigeleh from Paswol,
Lithuania, who lost her mother at a very young age.
Her father was reb Bezalel Rabinowitz and her mother
was Gittel a ration of the late chief rabbi of
Palestine; Reb Abraham Isaac Hacohen Kook.
Hersch Friedman (was born as Saidel) married
Eiga Rabinowitz in Jerusalem. Hersch was 21 & Eiga 12.
