Your Link to Riehle Family History & Networking…



Riehle.Net connects you with various Riehle surname contingents, providing Riehle-related stories, lineages, and photographs while facilitating research into your genealogy and genetic-genealogy and providing a forum for you to share your stories and findings.

Our site has been online since early in the millennium but over the last few years we have implemented new formats for existing content and are compiling new content, including a greater focus on individual Riehle Family Segments and aspects of genetic genealogy.

The focus on Family Segments generally includes information on our Immigrant Ancestors and the family trees which we or others maintain for these immigrants, their Old World ancestors, and their New World descendants.  

Our expanded coverage of genetic genealogy focuses on the increasing easy of genetic testing and the explosion of genetic data and genetic matches available to us online. We discuss autosomal DNA testing and matching services, both to link up with others having ancestors with the Riehle surname and as a tool for exploring other branches of our respective family trees. Also, since our site is primarily focused on the Riehle surname and since surnames in our society tend to follow the male-to-male lineage, we are attempting: to trace the Y-DNA haplogroups within and among the Riehle Family Segments.

We continue to look for better options for your participation, encouraging our registered users and guests to provide comments, participate in genetic research, and otherwise contribute to the site.

So please explore the site and feel free to leave comments or otherwise participate. We have had significant participation from near and distant cousins over the years, providing contributions concerning Immigrant Ancestors, ancestral lineages, and DNA testing and we look forward to more. Our goal is to continue to identify as many Immigrant Ancestors as possible and to have contacts within each family grouping and each Riehle family community in North America.

I have several photos of the F.A. Riehle family. My grandmother was Cornelia Riehle Widmeyer. If interested let me know where and how to share to this site.
