This page is dedicated to Ehrenreich family descendants. It focuses on the descendants of Levi Ehrenreich, whose first wife was Fannie Minz, and whose second wife was Johanna Hertz Frank, but I will post any family info of any Ehrenreich families that is submitted.

Although Ehrenreich is a fairly rare name, it comprises a number of disparate family groups, some of Jewish ancestry and some of Christian ancestry. It is an assumed name, adopted by a number of northern and eastern European family groups in the late 1700s. The earliest Ehrenreich family of whom I'm aware was a Jewish family that settled in New York City as merchants in the early 1800s. Below is my Ehrenreich family:
