Hi i born in Pakistan but live in Sweden i did my 111 Markers Y-DNA test. Isee only 2 Pakistani matches one Afghanistan match and one Indian match and which is less than 1% match of overall matches. even though i am from that region and i get so less percent match. One reason is that may be they do not have many samples from that region. When i did my autosomal DNA testing i found matches from Pakistan and India and many from other countries but on Y-DNA its completely different. I understand as Autosomal DNA testing shows matches from last 200 Years and Y-DNA from thousands of the years. By seeing such a large number of Ashknazi Jews match i feel like theories that pashtuns have Jewish roots seems true to me. And according to documented history it goes back to thousands of years. I read one last name story they are from Germany and due to their dark skin that last name was given and they speak Yiddish which is Aramic and Hebrew German. I have most of the matches from Ukraine,Poland and Germany many last names contain Halevi, Cohen,Horowitz,Greenberg, Godberg. So i may draw a conclusion that Ashkanzi Jews and Pashtuns from Afghanistan and Pakistan Region share the same ancestry line back in history about 3000 to 4000 years ago.

Any chance of any of you with HENRY ancestors? Our great grandfather, Simon/Sigmund/Sidney HENRY renounced the Czar of Russia in 1898 in his naturalization papers, thus coming from somewhere in the Greater Russian Empire, we don't know where from. Thank you, Karen vanHaagen Campbell, email@example.com

This is a picture of Moses Orowitz (Horowitz;Orovitz) and his wife Pessie/Bessie Belenky and their 2 children Eli Maurice Orowitz and Michael Orowitz. There are also 2 sisters not in the photo-Elizabeth and Ruth (Rachel). Moses' parent are Mordecai Orowitz and Channa Belenkey. I can't seem to go any further than that because their families were from Tetiev and the fires burned all records. Just wondering if anyone else has relations to this family

My great-grandparents Morris Horowitz and Eva Kantor who arrived in the U.S. in the early 1890s. Morris was born in Odessa. Eva was born in Vilna. My grandfather's name was Barney Horwitz, born in New York City in 1896. He had several older siblings, most born in Kiev in the 1880s/1890s. Eva died circa 1898, and Morris died in 1912. I've been unable to find the descendants of my grandfather's siblings. If either of these people look familiar, or if you think we might be Horowitz cousins, please let me know.
