Charles:

Thanks for your recent message.

I have not yet contacted our Amazeen relative yet about getting the paternal DNA test, but will be sure to keep you and the rest posted on the eventual results. (Of course, you could be tested instead if you like!)

Since my last post, I talked with an expert on the history of Jews in Yemen. He said he was certain that Amazeen (and its phonetic variants) was not a Yemeni Jewish name. He said it was likely Arabic. Unfortunately I have not had time to do further research on Arab surnames...But at least it helps rule out one possibility.

Best,

Roberta
