by Chaim Freedman
In commemoration of the 200th yahrzeit of Eliyahu ben Shlomo Zalmen, the Gaon of Vilna, Avotaynu has published a book documenting some 20,000 descendants of this great rabbi and scholar. Authored by the noted Israeli genealogist, Chaim Freedman, it solves many of the mysteries as to how various families are descended from the Gaon and his siblings. The author does not merely identify individuals but provides documentation and analyses to the links between them. Each descendant is assigned a unique code which exactly identifies the relationship between the individual and the Vilna Gaon.
