Acker DNA Project Update
The initial results are in.Thanks to a representative of the Dutchess County, NY Ackert family whose ancestry traces back to Wiesbaden, Germany, not only can the group administrator and cousins finally confirm their place among that lineage, but we now have a solid foundation of comparison for all subsequent participants.Already, a number of Ackers of various spelling and ancestry have expressed interest in this project, and our newest member hails from one of the southern states, a descendant of an Acker who settled in South Carolina prior to the Revolution.
We had fully expected (and understand) some hesitancy on the part of potential recruits due to the very newness of this project, and hope now that we are successfully off the ground, that this success will encourage those who have been otherwise reluctant to take the initiative to represent their respective families in this study.
