There are a lot of us in a similar boat/search. :-)
The search for the ancestral home village of my direct male line ancestor has

the DNA testing pond.

I am simply looking for my 5th Great Grandfather surnamed Carrel or some variant of spelling, origins in Europe. A son born about 1776 (whose firstborn was born in 1798) gives me an approximate date of birth about 1750. His grandchildren are equally divided in their response to the 1880 Federal Census where their father was born; either in Germany or in Pennsylvania.
