Greetings, all. I have Ydna I21/I2a2a. Genealogy indicates common paternal heritage with Niklaus Leuenberger, Swiss national hero of the 1653 Peasant War is probable I2b1/I2a2a. Zimmermans and Millers from N. Switzerland also have been documented as being of this haplogroup; famous folk-rocker Bob Dylan is a Zimmerman. I can think of at least one famous Miller.
Thanks, these sound promising. Do you have a link to anything concrete, like the particular Y-DNA samples on ySearch or in FTDNA projects, or to related genealogies? I'd like to be able to at least have something to link to, and perhaps get a more precise subclade, before I add anything to my list.
As for Bob Dylan: Isn't his Zimmerman line Jewish? Are you sure it connects to the Swiss Zimmerman lines?
