Chris et al:
My Delong family line is French Huguenot. I have a Delong Surname
Project started but have been having trouble getting more Delongs to
join. May 3rd cousin is a Delong and I have been after him for over a
year to take the Y-DNA test. I even offered to pay for it. But he won't
do it and won't state the real reason why. Just says he's not
interested. And you can only ask a prospect so many times and in so many
different way ... before you can turn them off for goo. I'm patiently
waiting for him to have a change of heart.
Here is the project page:
There were many German speaking French Huguenots families who were early
settlers in this area of s.e. Pennsylvania, eastern Berks County and
western Lehigh County PA.
