About the Arkin surname

Family oral history says the Arkin family lived in Turkey for several hundred years, having come over from Spain during the Inquisition. I don't know what our name in Spain may have been - maybe Aharon or Arcon. Eventually we walked up the valley to Lithuania/Poland/Belarus.
