DNA has been a definite help in tracing my German Bohemian ancestry.
They came to America in 1868, settling in Calumet County, Wisconsin. The
widow Anna remarried a widower Martin Fisher from Egerland. DNA matches
with that family having origins in Ehmet and Marklesgrün. Both families
Another match with a Werner descendant now living in Bavaria after
expulsion. This also shows common Finnish ancestry and with other matches
in Sweden. Could this be from an immigrant miner to the Sudetenland, or
possibly a carryover from the Thirty Years War?
A third match with Werner of Zwickau in Saxony, originally a Slavic Sorb
settlement going back to before 1700. Caspar Werner born about 1648
married to Maria Hayn. This part of Saxony likely place from which miners
crossed over into Bohemia.
There is also a more recent match with Werner of Kutná Hora. A Jewish
cemetery is in nearby field of Malešov called Maleschau in Kuttenberg then.
