Looks like no one's been on here in quite some time... I am Brian's brother, Steve, and I live in Waukesha, WI. I believe my/our father told me that they were from Poland. If you have any more info or would like to contact me, you can go to http://thenetzels.comhttp://thenetzels.com. I'd be interested in hearing from other Netzel relations of ours.
