Chaim VOIKANSKY is on Geni with 60+ children and is showing on facebook and ancestry.com with 114 children born between 15 and 54 which equates to an average of 3 children a year.

This project is to determine (via discussions) which profiles are correctly connected to Chaim as his children and which should be cousins, siblings or some other connection.

According to https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/vitsyebsk/Family_Stories/Voikhans... (written by Dror Vaikhansky) Chaim was a Rabbi and had about 16 children.

Please add the profile into the project and start a discussion on the profile about how they are connected to Chaim and where you have found this connection ie

  • family lore
  • family bible/diary
  • online family tree
  • birth, marriage, death records
  • newspaper records
  • DNA etc

DNA tests

  • Y-DNA - This is paternal line DNA. It is only passed down from father to son, so females cannot take this test as they do not have Y-DNA
  • mtDNA - This is maternal line DNA. It is passed from mothers to daughters and sons. However, son’s cannot pass it on to their children. Daughters, however, pass it on to their own daughters and sons
  • Autosomal DNA - can be used to identify both male and female-line relatives for a person.
  • Endogamy (Autosomal DNA) - For genetic purposes, Jews are what’s known as an “endogamous” population. They stayed in a relatively limited geographical area and typically married only within their own culture — and not infrequently within their own families. (A 2014 study suggested that all Ashkenazi Jews alive today trace back to the same 330 people. Endogamy means that Jews share much more DNA with each other than average, which grossly inflates their relationship predictions.
