Post by: hirschAdmin on January 29, 2006, 02:22:03 AM
We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:

•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

My name is Henry Hersh the same as my grand father. His father was EPHRAIM HERSH. He had
another son ADOLPH who spelled his name HIRSCH. He had 2 daughters. EPHRAIM came to USA
in the 1840's with a SARAH. He came from Bohemia (now the Czech Rep.). Ephraim and Adolph
who died in 1930 lived in New York City. Any info would be helpful. HHNARFE@EARTHLINK.NET. Time
is running out for me to give my children their heredity.
