The Bereskin Surname Project
We are trying to see if there are any DNA connections between different families named Bereskin, Breskin, Briskin, etc. Berezkin/Bereskins got the name from the Berezina River, which runs along the eastern side of Bobruisk, in what is now Belarus. Most of the Bereskins/Breskins I've found in the US and Canada are Jewish, but, since it's a place-name, we're finding Bereskins in Russia, etc., who are not Jewish and claim no Jewish roots. One branch has been in Alaska since the 1700's.
