I'm doing some genealogy research. Some of my ancestors are somewhat-known Hassidic figures. A few searches on Google yielded information in Hebrew and Yiddish that describes some of their dynasties.
What I can't figure out is the relationship between two men when someone is described as a "חתן" of someone else?
I know it's related to father-in-law and son-in-law but I can't figure out which one is which.
יעקב היה חתן מאנדל
Jacob was the Chasan of Mendel.
I think this means: Jacob was the son in law of mendel.
יהודה לייב וחתנו אברהם
Judah Leib and his Chasan Abraham
I think this means: Judah Leib was the father in law of Abraham
Is my assumption correct?
