There is a new book coming out -- available for pre-order at http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/
Traces line of Jeremias Schreckengast (immigrated to Colonies in 1764) back to Germany and through yDNA back some 5,000 years.It is expected to be available at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.com (in three formats) before December -- Schreck family members might be pleasantly surprised at what the research revealed:
“Grandpa Was A Deity”; 144 pages, hardcover nonfiction, $21.95; paperback nonfiction, $11.95; Kindle, 9.95
Beginning with his quest for his personal history, the author follows his y-DNA down a genealogical path which results in his taking a new look at an old subject – The Book of Genesis – and pondering the meaning behind first century statements by two prominent Jewish writers of the period, the historian Josephus, and the evangelical Saul of Tarsus (St Paul).
Along the way, this adoptee discovers that supposedly unrelated ancestral lines were linked in ways that belie their current histories and reveal their place, or influence, in the shaping of world culture, and subsequent history, in the context of an ancestral claim by those who carried his y-DNA, that their “Grandpa Was A Deity.”
