This is my family's lore and I am trying to explore it through DNA
testing (see my previous post on the subject and go to
http://tinyurl.com/nyh6z ). The HOROWITZ family (also Levites) has a
similar tradition. I have established a second DNA project to
accommodate all three (BENEVENISTE, HOROWITZ, and EPSTEIN) families
(see http://tinyurl.com/meyr9 ).

It is my understanding that all Epstein's that are Levy, descend
from the Benveniste family in Spain.
Those who are not Levy have changed they original surnames to
Epstein in an arbitrary way.

Am I wrong?
