My ancestors were Swiss Mennonites somewhere around the Zofingen area in Switzerland (on my Father's side). These ancestors were kicked out of Switzerland for being Mennonites (and not Calvinists) so they moved to The Netherlands and became Dutch Reformed. They reproduced in The Netherlands for awhile before coming to Albany, New York where they reproduced AGAIN. My ancestors were also French Huguenots (on my Mother's side). I share a common ancestor from the Ice Age with Thomas Jefferson. I was going to get more testing done on my DNA, but was told that since I'm so unusual (only 1 match with 25 markers in all these years) that it wasn't worth it because getting a read-out on the additional markers is only helpful if I can compare myself to other matches. The company that would have profited from the additional testing told me this.
