Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Rabbinic heritage of the ISRAEL family of Rhodes #rabbinic


According to Dr. Robert Rubin Mayo >from the "Jews of Rhodes DNA
Project" there are two ISRAEL Sephardic families that lived in Rhodes.
One family was >from the Rabbinical family (which is the one I am
following, (see below). Dr. Rubin can prove which tree you are from
providing there is Y DNA.

Y DNA testing is the way to determine which ancestral line of a given
surname a male descends from. The problem that I am having is that
the male line ended with my father-in law. He had 4 daughters and all
his siblings are deceased. I do not have MTDNA >from my wife
(deceased) but do have it >from her sister. My tree with the Israel
family can be found on ancestry.com under Siegel Family Tree_2A. Below
is a relationship view of my wife's family. There is no doubt that
Ralph ISRAEL came >from Rhodes. Many names in the tree are familiar to
the family and confirmed by an oral tree given to one of the sisters

How do I prove which branch of the Israel family my wife belongs to?
