    Notes 
    • I am not at all sure that Jewno is part of this family or that this is even his correct name. He is shown as an ancestor of people with all the right first names to be part of this family. I am looking at the Rezekne Family List at jewishgen.org. Until I have better information I will leave him as part of this family. Dave Howard Oct 2006.

    David Howard and Jeff Horwitz have have their yDNA tested and we are both are in Haplogroup Q which probably evolved in Siberia about 20,000 years ago. About 4% of Northern European Jewish (Ashkenazim) men are in this group. Only Jewish men appear to have markers +L245 and +F1680. So far not many other Horwitz families have this marker. There is a lot of speculation how this got into the Jewish family. Only Jewish men have this marker in the Northern European population.
