There has been DNA testing done and nearly an identical match between myself and Richard Kyker was found. We suspected that there was a different spelling adopted 6 or 7 generations back.(An old Bible had the spelling of Keicher).The paper trail had grown cold, but the DNA testconfirmed the relationship.(Ship lists, Church Records, etc.)
We are looking for a Keicher . . . that would be interested in genetic testing.
- For fun, check out the Keicher winery in Erlinbach Germany. http://www.privatkellerei-keicher.de/index1.htmlhttp://www.privatkellerei-keicher.de/index1.html I do not know if this is "our" Keichers but it is a nice trip near Heilbronn, Germany.
As it turns out I have a bottle ofWine from the Keicher Winery and would be willing to part with it for the first male Keicher that would have their DNA tested at the link below.It is easy, painless and the cost is somewhat reasonable.
- https://www.familytreedna.com is an excellent site for genetic information. (both Richard and myself belong to "Haplogroup" R1b1b2. Interesting reading can be found by typing R1b1b2 in to a search engine (Google, Yahoo).Also, Family Tree is an excellent resource.
