I am working on my genealogic history from a genetic standpoint as well as my family tree. I have had my DNA analyzed via 23andMe and was surprised to learn that I have a small percentage of Ashkenazi Jewish dna. I have been looking into my family tree and believe I have found the ancestor that it may have come from, but there is not much information on her.
My 7th Great Grandmother was named Margueritte (Margaretha) HAUPTMANN, HOFFMAN, OFFMAN, or KAUFMAN b. 1698 Baden-Wurttemberg, Gemany d. 1760 in Picardie, France married to Martin Mayer (Mair, Meyer). I cannot find any information on her line. I would like to connect with anyone with any information on her family.
When I researched Jewish families in Wurttemberg, there were only very few in the area at the time and they were not allowed to settle there permanently.
Martin Mayer passed away in 1752.
Her son is my 6th Great Grandfather. He was Hantz Jakob Mayer was born about 1715 who died in 10/17/1757 in St. Charles, Louisiana
Any information would be most appreciated.
