In December, 2005, Longenecker Y-DNA project identified that there are two genetically-different Laangeneggers from Switzerland. One Langenegger group is descended from the Langenegg village 1.5 miles north of Langnau, Canton Bern. The second Langenegger group is descended from the same-named Langenegg village south of Gais, Canton Appenzell. See: www.familytreedna.com/public/Longenecker.
