Re: Still looking for Bial,von Bieberste
>Bial <br><br>I forget whether you mentionedthis surname before, or whether your surnames were all
necessarily Jewish, but there's a Y chromosome DNA project
for people with the surname Beal or Bell. This seems
to be oriented toward people who are Scottish, but
maybe it will draw in Beals from other ethnicities. So,
if you can find a patrilineal descendant of your
Bials willing to send a cheek swab to Family Tree DNA,
maybe you could get some interesting genetic
evidence.<br><br>In theory, I could participate, too, but I know for
certain that my great-grandfather changed his name to
Bell, from Sivak, when he came to the United States, so
there's not much of a chance that my Bells are related to
- I am looking for the surnames ZILBERMAN, KARP and EPSTEIN of
Yarburg, Lithuania and JUDKOWSKY of Serednik, Lithuania.
