Greeting Dietrich Project members from Salt Lake City, Utah!
I'd like to introduce myself and and my genealogical goals. 
I'm hoping to break down "brick walls" keeping the origins in the Germanic states hidden from my family. Johann Dietrich, my 3 x great grandfather, was born about 1769 and emigrated, presumably with his parents to Kischker (Kisker, Kleinker), the Batschka, Hungary (now Serbia). He married Katharina (surname unknown). His son Johann Jakob Friedrich Dietrich was born 1793 in Kischker,.  They had at least 2 other children Katharina and Peter. About 1807 they emigrated again, this time to Neuburg, Grossliebental Districh of Odess, South Russia (now the Ukraine).  My great grandfather Johannes was born 1837 in Neuburg and married Christina Schmidt of Freudental.  The family immigrate to Scotland, Bon Homme, South Dakota with 7 children in 1873. My mother, Phyllis Dietrich was born and raised in North Dakota.
My brick walls are in Hungary as is seems most if not all records were destroyed during and after WWII.  The few clues that I've been able to find are in OFBs for the German colonies in Hungary and books written about the Auswanderunderer from the Germanic states as well as registration records for Conists in Vienna, Austria.  Unfortunately, I've found these writings  not always accurate.
I'm hoping DNA will help break down these brick wall eventually!  I'm administering my first cousin Bill Dietrich's Y-DNA67 and atDNA tests as well as my own YDNA67, atDNA and mtDNA tests, though in this case my YDNA won't be of use as I'm a Dazet.
I'm wondering if there are any Dietrichs here that share similar family stories?
Kind regards,

Family Tree DNA has released three additional SNP Packs at the introductory price of $99.00.  This brings the total number of SNP Packs available to 88.  The three new SNP Packs are:


The new L-M20 SNP Pack is the first one for that yDNA Haplogroup and looks like an excellent one that starts at the SNP that created that branch.  Unfortunately, we have no Members in that Haplogroup.

The J1-BY66 SNP Pack is for advanced testing of that sub-branch of yDNA Haplogroup J.  But since all of our Members are in the J2 sub-branch, this SNP Pack is of no use to them.

However, the new I-M253 SNP Pack, which I am not sure is labeled properly and should actually be I1-M253 instead, looks great for our I1 Members who currently have the I-M253 SNP on their FTDNA yDNA Badge, whether estimated (in red) or confirmed (in green).

My name is James Walter Moon. I live in Guntersville, Alabama where I was born. My Father was Earl Simpson Moon, Grandfather was Francis Butler Moon, Greatgrandfather was Jonas Posey Moon. I am led to believe that somehow my family came from Bucks Co. PA and from there to Sevier Co. TN. I know they moved from Sevier Co. Tn., with at least three other families to this area of North Alabama in the 1800s. The rest is sketchy. Can you help?

My mothers dna side was J2a1a1b.  According to her her grandparents from the mothers side were from Holland.  I believe the last name was either Schultz or DeJung, but getting straight answers is like pulling teeth. 

Reading up on the origins of the J2 line, they came from Clan Jasmine which originated in the Arabic Peninsula.  while J2 is very rare. However, J2 is found amongst 9% of the Kalash minority of north-west Pakistan.[7]   Where west meets east: the complex mtDNA landscape of the southwest and Central Asian corridor, American Journal of Human Genetics, vol. 74 (2004), pp. 827–845.

What my take away is this: This particular line we belong to originated in Arabia.. while many stuck around in that area & are found there today, many of this particular mutation also moved throughout all of Europe in smaller quantities. 

Anyone else find info on this? All I'm seeing is the European side, it'd be interesting to see another racial origins that can shed light on this.
