Y-DNA Research Studies of Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy #rabbinic


Jeffrey Mark Paull
 

For a little over ten years now, my research team and I, have been
conducting Y-DNA research studies which utilize both traditional
genealogy and current DNA methods and technology to identify the
unique Y-DNA genetic signature and ethnic origin of some of the
world's most esteemed and historically significant rabbinical
lineages and dynasties. These include the Katzenellenbogen, Lurie,
Polonsky, Rappaport-Cohen, and Shapiro rabbinical lineages, and the
Twersky and Wertheim-Giterman (Savran-Bendery) Chassidic dynasties,
as well as the lineages descending >from the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Levi
Yitzchak of Berdichev, Rabbi Naftula Cohen of Belaya Tzerkov, Rabbi
Raphael of Bershad, Rabbi Yechiel Michel of Zlatchov, Rabbi Yehuda
Heller Kahana of Sighet, and the Shpoler Zeida.

I am pleased to announce the posting of a research article in which I
explain the importance of rabbinical heritage research studies to the
practice of Jewish genealogy, and present an overview and summary of
some interesting findings and observations drawn >from our Y-DNA
research studies of the thirteen rabbinical lineages and dynasties
mentioned above, including the defining haplogroup and subclade that
is associated with the Y-DNA genetic signature for each of these
lineages. The title of the article is: "Y-DNA Research Studies of
Rabbinical Lineages and Their Importance to Jewish Genealogy," and
you will find it posted at:
