The Widelec Surname Project
The WIDELEC family Ydna project seeks to determine to what extent, if any, three Jewish familes with this unique surname with roots in Poland are related. One branch originated in Ostrow Mazowiecka (100 km northeast of Warsaw), one from the area around Kaluszyn & Minsk Mazowiecki (50 km east of Warsaw), and one from Sochaczew (57 km west of Warsaw).The WIDELEC family Ydna project is related to the research of the Beta-Thalassemia trait carried by descendants of the Ostrow Mazowiecka family. For more information on the Beta-Thalassemia project, go to www.diamondgen.org.It is also hoped that the project will identify other families in the Family Tree DNA databank (not carrying the WIDELEC name but having the same male progenitor) with a view to tracing the incidence of the Beta-Thalassemia trait in other (possibly unsuspecting) families.
