And I appear to be descended from a brother of bishop Hans Reist, the man who resisted Jacob Amman. Another one of my ancestors appears to have lived in Germantown, Pa. 310 years ago.

I appear to have ancestors who lived in Germantown, PA 310+ years ago as well, although I don't believe they were Mennonites as it says one was baptized the same year they were born. They did have a Mennonite last name though.

"Heinrich Frey was evidently not a Mennonite according to Smith's "Mennonite Immigration", page 85, but he was the first German in Pennsylvania. However, in the unpublished genealogy of Heinrich Frey, the story is told that on February 26, 1692, he was married to Catherine Levering "in the little log Mennonite meeting house and school house in Germantown where the present Mennonite church now stands on Germantown Avenue. Married by Francis Daniel Pastorius before a full congregation."

I had one of those DNA tests done. It turns out I am descended from Adam and Eve. Who would have imagined that?

Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they are not after you.
