I am making this post to let people know the success that can be found in DNA testing.I have been searching for over 30 years to establish my Albright/Albrecht line. I finally did DNA testing, it was over a year before I got my first match, after visiting with that Albright descendant I decided to trace a descendant from Johannes Albrecht who was born 1701 in Neerach, Zurich, Switzerland his souse was Margaretha Moor. I followed this line until present day.(Love the internet) After convincing the gentleman with my same surname that I wasn't a nut. He was willing to do the testing! First we matched 12 on 12, then 25 on 25, then 37 on 37, and finally a perfect 67 on 67 marker match. There is no question we come from the same line.
The more Albright's that get tested the more chance for success! Here is my oldest known Albright in my direct line!
