Hi Andrea, Your dad would indeed be a good candidate. If you are descended from Henrich Albrecht and Anna Folsom, it would help answer some questions. The latter couple who settled near Albany New York, are in theory related to Johannes Albrecht and Anna Barbara Grossauer who settled in Berks County PA in 1732. We don't have a test from anyone conclusively from this particular Lineage. Two of the tests we have so far have been R1B haplogroup, although the two apparently are separated by something around 1500 years. I came up in the G Haplogroup, meaning I share no common ancestor with these R1B Albrechts/Albrights in any time frame worth worrying about. So far I have found no other G Albrights / Albrechts, Johannes and Anna Barbara arrived in Philadelphia within 12 months of my ancestor, and they lived within about 50 miles of each other in colonial PA.

A 12 marker test costs about 100 dollars. Thats generally enough to get one into a haplogroup, although not much use in a genealogical sense. A 67 marker test costs about 300 dollars. I would suggest going for the 12 marker test, and seeing what those results are before going to the further expense. If you match one of these other Albrights at 12 markers, you are likely related. If you match ME, we'd be almost certainly related. because G is a relatively rare haplogroup that only occurs in 1=3% of the European population.

You can view the results at the Albright surname project at It would also be great if you would enter your tree on the patriarchs page. You will see others on the patriarch list who claim relationship to Henrich and Anna Folsom, also Johannes and Anna Barbara Grossauer. You can also email me direct at Eric_H_Albright at for help. Eric
