The Ashkenazi-Treves Surname Project
This is project is for all J-L862/L147.1 Cluster A3 [DYS533=12, DYS485=16, DYS452=30]. Guests are welcome! Almost all members of this clade seem to be closely related to the following families: Ashkenazi-Treves family (Ashkenazi-Jewish, Italian Jewish, and Sephardic) Jewish Toledano (Moroccan Jewish) Lipkin (Lithuanian Jewish) Martinez-Loera (Mexican from Nuevo Leon, perhaps originally "Alemano") De Cubilla (Boqueron Panama) Cardenas (Medellin, Columbia) Zemanis (Lithuanian Jewish, originally Ximenes / Jimenez) The earliest known ancestor of any of these families is Rabbi Joseph ben Yohanan "the German" (Ashkenazi) of Treves (Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany), born before the expulsion of the Jews from Trier in 1288, who lived in Marseille Provence (now France) from 1306 and in 1343 was Chief Rabbi of Marseille. His son Rabbi Mattityahu ben Joseph "ha-Provenzali" (the Provencal) (c. 1323-1387) who lived in Spain and later was Chief Rabbi of the Kingdom of France at Paris from 1361-1387. The Treves family itself went by many names, including Ashkenazi, Trevisan, Drifzan, Dreifuss, Dreifush, Ish Tzvi, Aleman, Alemano, Deutsch, Tedeschi, Scwartz, Ivier, Evenchik / Ewenchik, Evianski, Evans, Damesek, Spitzer, and many others. It is clear there are near relatives or descendants from Spain, Morocco, and the New World. It seems likely that the Toledano family of Morocco descend from a fellow Jewish refugee from Germany to Marseille, Rabbi Asher ben Jehiel (c. 1250-1328), whose eight sons became rabbis in various cities in Spain, including Toledo. His son Rabbi Jacob ben Asher (the Ba'al ha-Turim) was the author of the Jewish Religious Law code the Arb'a Turim, one of the three main sources for the primary modern text of Halakha (Jewish Religious Law), the Shulhan Arukh. All are welcome to join this project, matches in the -L862/L147.1 Cluster A3 [DYS533=12, DYS485=16, DYS452=30] clade, relatives, and guests.
