I recently received a report from my grandfather, Nicolas Guillen, from Panticosa, Huesca in Aragon and his haplotype is L21. I wonder if anybody else in this forum has any other information about the haplotypes of Guillen or of the north of Aragon.

In the Pedigree listing of DNA results, it appears that there may be a link between R1b-I and R1b-IV in that all members show DYS 481 = 18.  This is consistent with Haplotype R-A212.

Hi Connie,

Did you mean that there is no match in this surname project yet? I understand that patience is a requirement for DNA testing, especially Y-DNA. No way of knowing whether someone with the right DNA will test. It doesn't help that DNA testing in Germany is not common, I understand because of privacy concerns.

Have you had any luck with traditional paper research on your family?  Of course we have to keep in mind that our ancestors often changed the spelling of the family surname when they arrive in North America, so when researching we have try many spelling variations.  I've found that Dieterich and Dietrich are the most common spellings in Germany. I believe there should be some good resources for Braunschweig.  I seem to have have the best luck using, but have found some ancestors using

I have found some good resources by joining email listservers for specific regions in Germany.  Of course speaking and writing German is helpful.

How many markers did you test for and have you tried any of SNP packs?  Also, the Germany Project is quite active and there are quite a few knowledgeable members that might help.

So far I've actually had better luck using my atDNA tests (FF and Ancestry DNA) using triangulation.  Family Tree DNA has a lot good tools for FF.  And of course you can use a third party utility like QEDmatch. 

Another good resource is  There are a lot Dietrichs there.

I've become the administrator and hope to see a little more activity.

Yes, it looks like a "non-paternal event" somewhere in what is now the "Lineage II" Crandalls.  Hopefully the people who have taken tests but did not provide their ancestral line will do so, as that will help us figure this out.
