HANAN DNA STUDY #latinamerica
bob rubin <bob_rubin@...>
I am very excited to report that I have recently started a study of
descendants of HANANs >from the Island of Rhodes. This island passed >from
Ottoman/Turkish to Italian and finally Greek rule. The HANAN family has a
long history on the Island of Rhodes, likely dating back to the 1500s.
Several Rhodesli families set up businesses in Megri/Macri/Fethiye, Turkey,
during the late 1700s to the early 1900s. Today, the HANANs >from Rhodes live
throughout the world, especially in the USA (Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland,
Montgomery, Atlanta, New York), Argentina (Buenos Aires), Brazil, Panama,
South Africa, Zimbabwe, Belgium, Egypt, Turkey, and Israel.
The goals of this project are to determine if these HANANs >from Rhodes are
descended >from one couple that arrived in Rhodes during the 1500s (that is,
an “Adam and Eve”). I will also attempt to clarify the relationships between
all HANAN families that lived on Rhodes.
For further information, or to see if you qualify, please contact me
