Speculations on origin of Hoffheintz
The single male Huffines descendant who has taken the Y-DNA test has the E-M35 haplogroup which originates in North Africa and the Near East. My own "ethnic origins" reports say I have 1% Levant too, despite no known ancestry there. So it's a little curious that in German, Hoffheints means "Farm of Heintz", and Heintz is both a German and Jewish name.
