Pfister DNA
Posted by: Jim Feaster (ID *****0623) Date: July 09, 2004 at 08:23:20

According to family records, our family name Feaster was changed from Pfister in the 18th century, probably by Henry Feaster, Jr. from Maryland. His father was Henrich (or Heinrich) Pfister, believed born in Germany in 1725. Other sources suggest we are descendents of the Pfister family in Switzerland.

I have had my y-DNA analyzed and would like to compare with Pfisters from Germany or Switzerland, or Americans who are knowledgeable of their European roots. Anybody out there have their DNA profile?
