As a descendant of this Welhausen family, I have joined with other Wellhausen descendants to start a new Wellhausen Family History Y-DNA Study. Its purpose is to use Y-DNA testing to identify and trace different Wellhausen families in Germany, Holland, America and elsewhere, to prove which families are related, and to find out more about where they came from and when.
Our Welhausen family already has a 12/12 match with the Wellhouse family that immigrated from Hanover to Wayne Co., OH. Our haplogroup is I1, and our subclade is I-M253-AS7E to a 41% probability at 12 markers.
You are invited to check out our study group website with more information on the Hildescheim line and other Wellhausen family lines and on our haplogroup and subclade at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/WellhausenFamilyHistoryY...
Please contact me by email for further info on this family line. You may be a cousin.
