Family Tree
Family Tree data have been gathered from many sources, and the tree continues to grow as more data are found. The Tatkin name came to be relatively recently when the family migrated from Russia a little more than 100 years ago. According to Lowell Tatkin, "I remember my grandfather Oscar telling me that the name was originally 'Tatko' but was changed to Tatkin when they arrived." But Lowell also said that "Allen Tatkin told me many years later that the story his father had said about the Tatkin name was not true, but I donít know why my grandfather would have lied to me about it."
