Hello for all Group Members. My name is Piotr and I am from Poland. I would like to ask You about my mtDNA haplogroup J1b1a1. I see that two more people have this haplogroup. Can I say about myself that I am Jewish or I have Jewish origins ? Thank You in advance for the informations.

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.

I am curious also. Relatives from Hungary with Horowitz ancestors, that were in New York in the 1960s (mother/son). Mother was born in 1910 and was a doctor (pediatrician) in New York City. Son went to the university of Buffalo in 1965. Son was born in 1942.

Hi, Does anyone have relatives that fit this description (I have no names)? A female pediatrician in NY in 1965, who was born in 1910. Probably 100% Hungarian (definitely 100% Azkenazi). She had a son in 1942. The son was a Senior at the University of Buffalo in 1965, but dropped out and went back to New York City. The husband/father was deceased in 1965. Has Horowitz ancestor.

My great grandfather David Hurvitz came to the USA from Kremenetz, Ukraine (born ~1860) with his wife Sophia Vinocur/Geller. His father was Joseph Gorowitz?. This family settled in and around Boston, Ma. Please feel free to reach out to me if you can help me out. Jeffrey.lurie@me.com

My great grandfather Abraham Hurwitz came to South Africa from(somewhere in) Russia in the early 1900's, I believe. He married Hannah "Chana" Elin, who I've come to learn was Yelinger and later changed to Elin - im not sure whether they got married in the old country but they raised their family in Johannesburg, South Africa. I'm not sure of his father's name, it could've been Yaakov. We are of the Levi tribe, and our tradition is to NOT EAT TURKEY(anyone else with this custom?). Any info would be awesome!

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, karencampbellgenealogy@outlook.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
