Paperback: $14.15
Prints in 3-5 business days
DNA testing led to information showing where my ancestors traveled and lived over an approximate 50,000 years. This journey began in Eastern central Africa and ended with my ancestors moving to... More > America in 1717. The history of the locations where my DNA type was found led me to realize how much of the world’s history was developing where they traveled and lived. Their journey took them from Africa to Anatolia, the Fertile Crescent area (Bible Lands) and across the Alps into Switzerland where they began using the surname Knusli. In Switzerland, they joined the Mennonite Religion and suffered religious persecution and were forced to move to Alsace on the Rhine River. In 1717, they made the journey to America and settled near Lancaster, PA. The Knusli surname has changed many times over the years including Nicely, Knisely, Kneisly, Knisley, and others. DNA testing has linked these and many other spellings to the Knusli family line. This book is the result of 15 years of family research.< Less
