As a proper Czernowitzer, I am a skeptic and certainly do not trust
information put out by commercial companies. I looked at the site of and was not persuaded.

I personally, am a descendant of Rabbi Yomtov Lipman Halevi Heller
b. 1579 Wallerstein Germany and his descendant Rabbi Yehudah Kahana
of Sighet. Also of Rabbi Ezekiel Landau, chief rabbi of Prague, known
as "Noda bi-Yehudah", through him to Rashi and through Rashi to king David.
At the same time, I am sure, that I am descendant from an assortment
of Jewish Kabzunim, Shlimazels, Yachne-Sossyes and also various "Sonney
Isruel", who probably raped some of my female ancestors.
