In many cases the descendants of the various Paikin-families are known up to this date, and many of them have joined this Paikin Genealogy Project. However, for reasons of discretion and privacy details are not given for persons born after 1900.
Please note that the name are known to be spelled i various ways:
Piken - Pikin - Pajkin - Paykin - Paikine - Peiken - Peikin - and even Paikov!
When all the descendants in the various Paikin-branches (which are known at present), all the "strays" and single Paikins will be mentioned, and finally, I will attempt to outline some possible links between the various Paikin-families.
After research commissioned in the Riga and Minsk Archives and going through the comprehensive reports received from the archives, several new links between various branches have been found. This website will soon be updated with the results.
However, as the paper trail seems to have come to and end, a Family Tree Surname DNA project has been started in order to find possible links between other branches as well. Please see: www.familytreedna.com for more information on this project and for joining the project.
However, please note that this is an ongoing process, and information keeps coming in!
All and any information, suggestions, hypotheses, stories, photos etc. about Paikins, Paikin-descendants or - spouses will be greatly appreciated!.
