    • In the table of deaths in Rezekne in 1880 translated by Christine Usdin there is a death reported for Abram Gurvich son of Genukh. He was 85 at the time of his death indicating a birth date of about 1795. The note says the cause of death was old age and that he was from Rezekne originally.

    Notes 
    • Afroim is inferred from the 1897 census. There is an entry for Henoch son of Afroim. We are guessing that this Afroim had a father named Henoch and that he was not a son of Shevel. Time and research will tell us if we have the right connection here.

      His son Henoch was listed as 85 in the 1897 census which would give a year of birth for Henoch of about 1812. Assuming Afroim was 24 years old (wild guess) then Afroim would have been born about 1788.

      He could be the son of Shevel but Shevel would have been only 17 years old. Of course if Afroim was 21 when Henoch was born then Shevel would have been 21 when Afroim was born.

      Who knows if Henoch, the father of Shevel, is really the same Henoch?

    David Howard and Jeff Horwitz have have their yDNA tested and we are both are in Haplogroup Q which probably evolved in Siberia about 20,000 years ago. About 4% of Northern European Jewish (Ashkenazim) men are in this group. Only Jewish men appear to have markers +L245 and +F1680. So far not many other Horwitz families have this marker. There is a lot of speculation how this got into the Jewish family. Only Jewish men have this marker in the Northern European population.
