Re: Deutsch family tree on Geni going back to the 14th century #hungary

Yes, Balázs Déri's Deutsch tree is only hypothetical when it gets past about 1780-1800. To do an audit we did Y-DNA testing of direct male descendants various of his "branches", and they do not all match. Unfortunately Balázs (who is also a Deutsch, re-named to Déri), does not believe in DNA testing himself and declined to do it, though a free test was offered to him. So we don't know where his own branch fits in. If you are a Deutsch male, you can do a Y-DNA test yourself at FTDNA and join the Deutsch surname project to see whether/if you match any of the others.
