Recent Y-DNA testing verifies link to German RÜHRSCHNECK and American RUEHRSCHNECK cousins!!
A 37 marker match has been found between John Stuart Rasnick, American descendant of Jacob Rasnick, and Christian Rührschneck in Germany.
Areas matched exactly in 36 of the 37 markers tested. This means that there is a 99% likelihood they share a common ancestor in a genealogical time frame. Testing of a member of the American Ruehrschneck family also connects that line with their German and American cousins and determines us to all belong to the same family.
