As a RAMER/RÍMER/RAYMER family researcher for nearly 40 years, I have been very aware of the five major lines carrying these names (or who later adopted them) that were in PA prior to 1750, as well as significant lines in N.C. and KY that are thought to be somehow connected to these lines. To my knowledge no one has yet been able to demonstrate any relationship between any of these lines.

Further, as a researcher focused on the line of Philip RÍMER who immigrated on the ship Friendship of Bristol on 16 Oct 1727, I am unaware of anyone who has convincingly tied any of those lines back to their European sources.
We are anticipating such an effort in Europe starting this year.

Therefore, I am excited to report that we have initiated a DNA study with the intent of determining relationships, if any, between the 7 domestic lines mentioned as well as between any of them and lines in Switzerland and Germany.

We need at least one male direct descendant of each of these lines to partipate. A second participant would be fairly valuable as well.

Additional participants, whether with a proven relationship to any of these lines, or of a line not yet known to be related to any of the above are also welcomed.

Please contact me directly at: for more details.

An immense amount of information could be generated if we all work together.
