  • Name Afroim Horwitz  [1
    • This Afroim is a guess, I will have to check this out more. The Rezekne Family List shows a fellow Asriel son of Afrim, grandson of Leiser, son of Liba Gurewitsch. I am guessing that Liba is a widow of Afrim and not a daughter of Leiser Gurewitsch.

    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.
