Riehle Surname Project Established

November 1, 2022 – A “Riehle of Germanic Europe” Surname Project Has Been Established at Family Tree DNA in Cooperation with Riehle.Net to Explore Y-DNA Haplogroup Lineages Associated with our Riehle Surname.

Family Tree DNA has authorized the formation of a surname project to explore the genetic roots of people with the Riehle surname as well as related surnames such as Rhule, Riehl, Reel, Reely or similar. The project name, “Riehle of Germanic Europe” distinguishes it from the more Irish/British focused “Riley Surname Project” under which our surname had previously been grouped.

Riehle.Net had applied for the establishment of the new surname project to provide greater exposure to our efforts to recruit Y-chromosome haplogroup test subjects as we confidentially explore the genetic roots of the various Family Segments of people with the Riehle or related surnames. (Family Tree DNA characterizes our Family Segments as family contingents.)

Family Tree DNA is a preeminent organization in genetic genealogy and related scientific circles for the exploration of Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA haplogroups. Family Tree provides intermediate and full-detail testing options for the determination of such haplogroup membership for individuals. Perhaps more importantly, the organization groups, analyzes and shares the results of their membership’s haplogroup data, adding to the global scientific understanding of Y-DNA and mtDNA mutations and migration patterns. This is done while protecting the privacy of members according to permission profiles established by each individual member.
