I am from the Ellender/Trahan/Landry line of LA down my mother's side. I get stuck after George Ellender/Marie Petit Klaim (1760's). Family genetics tests suggest some amazing things.
I have George Ellender's parents as Johann Gorg Ellinger/Maria Justina Leitner. Is this correct? If so, who were Johann's parents and Maria's parents?
And, who were Marie Petit Klaim's parents?
There is some suggestion that Jewish genes may run these lines? Ideas? Are we dealing with early or late conversion? Why change your name from Ellender to Ellinger? Lancaster, PA was Amish and Jewish early on...
My genetics tests keep showing Moroccan, Portugeuse, Spanish, Italian, and Israeli Jew.
My mother's tends to have the French, Irish, British, mestizo/indian, and European diaspora to South America and Mexico (Spanish, Italien, Moroccan/Portugeuse?)...
Any help would be wonderful. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
