"Central Asia is revealed to be an important reservoir of genetic diversity, and the source of at least three waves of migration, leading into Europe, the Americas and India." Modern humans migrated out of Africa into Central Asia before spreading both east and west into North America and Europe, says an international team of scientists who have used modern DNA analysis to trace ancient migrations. "Around 40-50,000 years ago, [approximately 2000 generations] Central Asia was full of tropical trees, a good place for hunting and fishing," said Nadira Yuldasheva of the Institute of Immunology at the Academy of Sciences, Tashkent, Uzbekistan. "Then, as desertification came in, some people moved west into Europe and some moved into Siberia, [India] and on into North [and South] America."

ADAM CHRISTIAN and CATHERINE WUNDERLICH BARTH are the second great grandparents of VERNELL SCHIEVELBEIN who has provided a BARTH Family Ancestral Tree prepared by ROBERT BARTH who remained in Germany and had this Ancestral Tree prepared during the Hitler regime to prove that this particular BARTH family was not of Jewish descent, as he owned a factory that produced violins. A photograph of the factory taken before Hitler’s men converted it into a weapon's factory also exists according to VERNELL SCHIEVELBEIN. In organizing a BARTH Family Reunion, one of the BARTH descendants included this family tree with the invitation. In total, four sons of ADAM CHRISTIAN and CATHERINE WUNDERLICH BARTH migrated to the United States – RICHARD, MORITZ, EDUARD, and HERMANN BARTH.
