Looking for information about Naftali (Eli) HERTZ RASKIN #belarus
In the last ten years I am searching for information about my great grand grandfather Naftali (Eli) Hertz Raskin, who lived in the village of El'nya, close to Hotimsk, Mogilev, Belarus, and was a cantor and schohet. He was born around 1840 and died around 1923.
Naftali Eli Hertz Raskin was married to FEIGA ZLOTINA (born around 1850 and died around 1916), and they had at least 6 daughters and 6 sons; AIZIK ITZHAK RASKIN, PERL RASKINA HAIKINA, ABRAM YAKOV RASKIN, RISSI RASKINA FRADKIN GROISSMAN, BORUCH ARON RASKIN, LIBA RASKINA KRUGLYAKOVA, DAVID RASKIN, NECHAMA/FREIDA RASKINA, LEIB LEV RASKIN, HAE BELLA BEILE RASKINA GODLINA, GENUH RASKIN AND ETEL ETA RASKINA ZLOTINA.
During all these years I learned that there are thousands of RASKINS spread worldwide, and not all of them are relatives of each other. As you know, one modern way to check if we are from the same Raskin clade, is to check our Y chromosome DNA. I did my test, and besides showing that I totally match the Cohen genetic markers, it gave me a very good idea of my paternal Raskin ancestral in Russia. The male Russian relatives who indeed are my relatives and have the last name Raskin, also tested their Y DNA, and we share the same Y DNA haplotype, as expected.
If you have ANY information about NAFTALI ELI HERTZ RASKIN, please email me at s.raskin@...
