We are trying to get a better sense of the genetic ancestry of the Riehle line. Clearly, even with the male (Y) haplogroup we are not all going to be the same due to adoptions or other variations that can creep into the family line. All are legitimate representations of the Riehle family, so for all you Riehle guys out there that have done genetic testing, please contribute.
We are attempting to tie the various results to the Riehle immigrants or other broad family identifiers. More data will yield better insights, so please do not hold back just because there are results for your ancestral line already. More listings with the same haplogroup and ancestor provide better information, as does information related to additional haplogroups. Please provide the most distant direct Riehle ancestor you know of, preferably your immigrant ancestor.
If you know of adoptions or other reasons why your results might vary from the immigrant, please describe the situation. Nothing will go on this table without your review and approval but such context will be helpful regardless.
|(Y) Haplogroup||Immigrant Ancestor or Similar Family Tie|
