17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #dna

howard sachs

DNA records and Geni tracings suggest material religious-ethnic crossovers in the century after Luther in Southwest Germany & Switzerland,.  Geni reports Vice President Pence has Weil ancestry with a Swiss cross-over in the 17th century (or late 16th). Y DNA  connects my closest all-male line with a "Pennsylvania Dutch"  migrant --early 1700s.  Similar tracings have been noted.  Any literature or comment supporting or rebutting this theory?  Howard Sachs, Kansas City
