My name is Leanne M Baraban, family genealogist. We sent
in our son's (Brian) DNA to research his surname, BARABAN. My
husband, Steve and I are both microbiologists. Steve continued his
studies and is presently a pharmacist. We live in the Kansas City
area. Brian is a senior at the University of Kansas studying
economists and psychology. He plans to attend graduate school.
Regarding the BARABAN line--We heard the "tale" of the
Jews fling the Spanish Inquisition in our family.
The BARABAN line is Jewish; they emigrated in the early
1800's from Zhitomir, Russia. They came into the U.S. via Galveston,
Texas then to Kansas City. The surnames in the line are: BARABAN,
KATZ, SHANE, MAIZEBERG and GARDINSKY. Wolf Beryl Baraban was a
charter member of Tefares Israel Congregation in Kansas City.
If anyone has Kansas City connections, I have the book
`Gone But Not Forgotten, A History of the Burials in the Jewish
Cemeteries of Kansas City, Missouri, by Anita Loeb'. I would be happy
to do look-ups.
