Jacob R. Lampert (1844-1917) my oldest USA ancestor
Three Lampert’s; possibly cousins, brothers (or unrelated) from Flasch, Switzerland; Jakob, born about 1750; Florian, born September 1763; and Christian, born January 1786, (Margaret Lampert Wiesenberg called them “Allied Families”) all had children, who had children, who had children ......Many of those decendents came to America and settled in the mid-western United States. This is the genealogy of those three Lamperts. My heartfelt thanks and respect goes to Margaret
Lampert Wiesenberg for the wonderful job that she
did in 1939 It allows those of us who come after to be able to learn of our ancestors.
All of the pre-1939 data comes from her book about the Lampert family. All information has been gathered from public records.
A yDNA project has been started at http://www.familytreedna.com. Any male with the surname Lampert is encouraged to participate in this DNA project. Ladies, find a male Lampert cousin to do the test for you. This DNA test will match up the participants with other Lampert lines, or will show what lines we don't match. It may also match us up with our Lampert immigrant by a match to a descendant of a known immigrant ancestor. The goal is to accumulate a large Lamprt DNA database with participants from many major Lampert lines descended from known immigrants.
Since a Surname Project in essence traces members of a family that share a common surname,
and females (a) don't carry their father's Y-DNA, and (b) acquire a new surname by the way of marriage, in order to be relevant to the Surname Project, the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's father's...). The test to be ordered is either the Y-DNA or Y-DNAPlus, and females should look for a brother or cousin with that surname to be tested. Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of this test cannot be tied to the Surname Project.
