I am seeking out information on the Knights of Aschach ( Germany & Austria) from the 10th to the 12th century AD. Any one with information could you please let me know.

My paternal ancestor, 2x great grandfather "August" Heinrich Justus Hillemann, was born 7 Aug 1813 in Sudheim, Kingdom of Hannover (now German state of Niedersachsen), and immigrated to Missouri, probably through New Orleans likely in the 1830s.  He died of cholera on 1 Aug 1852.  According to Geno2, my headline Y-DNA haplogroup is I-Z74, but   review of my raw DNA by Ken Nordtvedt and Terry Robb revealed my haplogroup to be more precisely I1d-CTS2208/CTS5476.  A further evolved branch eventually migrated up to Finland and became the Bothnian clade, but my ancestors stayed on the north Germanic plain.  If anyone else is hg I1d-CTS2208/CTS547, I would love to be informed!

Julian, thank you for sharing your insight.  Perhaps this is why the 1000 Genomes Project has not yet obtained DNA from the population in the Hannover region.  However, the German people are not so different from Americans, most of whom do not know ancestors further back than their grandparents, or perhaps great grandparents.  Furthermore, even among my friends and relatives interested in genealogy, I am the only one to have engaged in DNA testing.  The American participants in FTDNA DNA projects are not typical Americans.

When I have more available time after retirement, I may try contacting the Hillemann-surnamed residents near Sudheim to inquire whether they would like to share family history information.  At least we know that the church books for Sudheim still exist.  Although we believe they are being well cared for, I still wish the German state would create backup images and preferably make the images available to the public.

My ancestor Jacob Hellmenthal was from Hesse and came to Virginia as a soldier in the American Revolutionary War. According to the HETRINA he was recruited in Ippinghausen Germany.My Ydna is R1b1a2a1a1a (R-U106) and further refined to L- 48 by FamilyTreeDNA.com. Any one else from Hessian roots?

I am the Admin and original creator for the Germanic Area German language FTDNA YDNA project with 2320 members all seeking to learn about Germanic ancestry and early locations of ancestors and early ethnic groups and groups today with same ydna types as themselves. When I started it Dr Bennett Greenspan was amazed at my positive C3 test knowing I had documented ancestry to 1588 in Lauterecken, Germany so he allowed me to create the project..

So come share your own dna story and discover your living relatives as I have done and many hundreds here at this project have done. The project has a goal of ALL Germanic speaking people discovering their ancestry and present day living relatives and all of us together learning historic Germanic stories that made us who we are.

For myself I am now c3a5 from early Central Asia which today equates to P53.1 XIBE tribe of Northern China. I encourage you to take the GENO 2 test to further and very deeply discover the tiny branches of your line and where it was found in ancestral line times. I have taken it and await results expanding deeper my known small branches in time and ethnic groups.

Please take a look at my facebook page also at Ed's Nature Photography
Thank you Eugen Hartmann for creating tis new place for us to share our dna and news and pictures etc..

Guten Aben,

My Ancestral name  Von Aschac-> de Aschac > Axac -> Axach -> Axiach ->Axiak> Asciak ancestral records show a Lenz (Lenzu, Lorenzu, Lorenzo, Lawrence) de Aschac of early 14th century in Kingdom of Sicily/Malta and would have arrived or his father around 1288AD when the recapture of Sicily/Malta from the French. He may have been already local as records show that he was the Captain of the Sons of Sicily when recapturing Malta for the Aragonese. Prior to 1266 Sicily was under Hohenstaufen rule.

I'm looking for Hartmann descendants from this line:

Karl Hartmann (b. 1925, Reinwald, Volga, Russia)
Karl Hartmann (b. 1884, Reinwald, Volga, Russia)
Johann Caspar Hartmann (b. 1852, Reinwald, Volga, Russia)
Karl Hartmann (b. 1823, Reinwald, Volga, Russia)
Johannes Hartmann (b. 1792, Reinwald, Volga, Russia)
Johannes Hartmann (b. 1748, Stolberg-Gedern, Hessen, Germany)
Johann Peter Hartmann (b. 1707, Stolberg-Gedern/Usenborn (?), Hessen, Germany) ----
(Hartmann,Peter,60,luth.,Ackerbauer aus Stolberg,Gedern? Witwer Kinder:
Engelhard,25; Johannes,18; Johann Heinrich,14;Johann Christian,10 in der
Kolonie eingetroffen am 24.6.1767)

Some of their descendants immigrated to the USA in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Also I'm looking for Wigand and Seitz descendants (Reinwald, Volga, Russia).

My Y-DNA is I1 (M253+, Z58+, Z140+).

I don`t know if it helps, but I have two Hartmann`s (Margaretha & Anna) in my tree that married into the Schattenberg family in the mid to late 1700`s in Danstedt, Germany, respectively.

My paternal ancestor, Jacob Zimpfer, came from Germany to America on the Ship Nancy (with no other family members) in Sept. 1752, arriving in Philadelphia. (His children evidently changed the surname to Simmons.) I had my paternal uncle's DNA tested...it is E-M84. I have not been able to find out where in Germany Jacob Zimpfer came from, or anything about his family members, and have not run across the Zimpfer surname in any Y-DNA surname project. If anyone knows anything about this surname, I should would appreciate hearing from you! Thanks!

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to your question. Yes, his kit number is 231372. I don't seem to be having much luck with finding any relatives through DNA...(Although maybe I don't understand exactly what I am looking at either!). I don't ever see the Zimpfer name listed on surname projects of any kind...there aren't even too many family trees with this name on ancestry.com.

I traced my BALL-family back to Bad Bergzabern in the Pfalz. Some twenty years ago I saw a telephone-directory of Bad Bergzabern and discovered some 15 BALLS there !
