I've been reading articles recently about  "Auswanderung  aus der Pfalz".  There is a translation of the introduction  to Angela Hefner's book "Tscherwenka - 1785-1944 - Tscherwenkaer Familienwhich" which  is very informative about reasons for the exodus of many Germanic people from the various German "Duchies" .

It seems many ancestors of Dietrich project members came to the US during the period of  the large Palatine migration.

My ancestors it seems, were part of the Great Schwabian Trek:  and were later immigrants to the USA in 1873.  The period from 1820 to 1920 it seems was the period of the largest immigration of German people.

Hi Shane! I was just about to enter my pedigree, which I'll enter below, when I saw your post. My ancestors are mostly from Knockgraffon as well. We're a distant match (only 1 cM!) but I think that is a function of how many generations we're looking back! E-mail me if you'd like to compare pedigrees.

Hi All Dietrich Project Members,

We all have genetic genealogy goals and reasons for taking the the Family Tree DNA, Y-DNA test.  My reason is to break down the "Brick Wall" keeping me from finding my Dietrich families origins in the Germanic States.  They seemed to just have magically appeared in Neuburg South Russia near Odessa on the Black Sea in 1807.  Others in my Dietrich family that had done research, assumed that they came from Württemberg, like many other colonists in South Russia.  For the colonies of South Russia there is a massive volume of information compiled and published by Dr. Karl Stumpp. And there are many Historical Societies such as the Germans from Russia Historical Society with all kinds of great info. There are two early census's from 1812 and 1816 that record  Johann Dietrich, wife Katharina and 3 children as living in Neuburg.  After 1833 there are church records archived in St. Petersburg Russia that are available on films at the FHL in Salt Lake City.
By 1833, the only member of the family that seems to still be alive in Neuburg is Son Jakob Dietrich, his wife Katharina Elisabetha Schneider and children.  The Lutheran Churches in the Grossleibental Districh of Odessa which included Neuburg kept pretty good records.  Each family, in addition to having births, baptisms, marriages,deaths and burials recorded, had a page/pages in a church family book.  This church family book number and page was also entered in a column in the main church records that were archived in St. Peterburg.  I could not find Jakob's death record.  After extensive research I checked each index for all Dietrichs in Nueburg and looked at the films for the Church Family Book number and page.  I found him recorded as Johann Friedrich Dieterich who died in 1842. This showed me that you always have to check every possible spelling of the Dietrich name, and be aware that each individual could have had up to as many as 5 given names!.  This was hims for sure because of the age at death, and the church family book and page number, plus there was only one Dietrich family in Neuburg at the time.  Now here was the important fact that was recorded.  His place of Birth, Kis-ker Hungary!!!.   
So I started to research the Ortsippen Books for Kishker/Kis-ker/Klein-ker, the Batschka, Hungary (now Serbia). I found  no record of Johann Dietrich and family.  However there were two not related Dietrich families from the Pfalz.  One was the Johann Nicolaus family from Hirschfeld, Pfalz and the other was the Johann Valentine family from Mariental, Pfalz.
There is a book written about the German emigrants who settled in Hungary Called the "Sammelwerk Donauaschaben" by Stader.  He lists a Johann Michael Dietrich and family living in the house next to his brother Johann Nicolaus.  Only the brother Johann Michael appeartly was never in Kischker. While registering in Vienna was sent to Landestreu, Galicia.  I found the records for them having lived there.   Stader says this Michael Dietrich from Hirschfeld, a sheppard and cowheard whent to Kischker with wife Margaretha and two sons Mathtias and Johann Burckhard, who was born in 1769, the correct act of my Johann This was not Nicolaus 's brother, it was his cousin. .  Of course there is no proof that was my family.  That is what I'm hoping my Y-DNA67 test will prove, or disprove.  If it is disproved, than who was Johann?  This is my Brick Wall.
I'm wondering what goals others here have and what your research stories are?
Now here is the possible killer.  Johann Nicolaus and Johann Michael of Hirschfeld, Hunsrück, Pfalz, were decendents of Hans Dietrich of Hattgenstein.  Dietrich Project Administrator, Brian Dietrick lists Hans Dietrich as his oldest known ancestor.  Brian is haplogroup R-M269 and we are haplogroup E-M35!!.  What do you think?

 Well seems Wadie and her sister Mary married other Byrds. I traced both Doctor Frank Byrd and William Peyton Byrd back 3 generations or more so I guess they were already established here when my Byrds come along. My Byrds have migrated from Va to NC to WV and back to NC.

Hi, I am very new when we are talking about DNA, but I have to ask. My brothers haplogroup is R-M207
Subgroup R1b1b2a*-S128.

What is the name of them so I can find something about it, I have seen many different text and numbers but it´s complicated I think.

Best Regards

I have a close match with kit 280248 in the Kolb surname project, and I would like to contact the kit's administrator to find out more about his ancestor Georg Martin Koob.  I don't see a way to do this, i.e. look up an administrator using the kit number.

BTW, this kit has no pedigree associated with it.

Any ideas?

Dave Culp
