My ancestors came to the Netherlands from Germany..my contact there said the name changed to Stahlie. So anyone with that name there are all connected to the progenitor which came from around Albershausen, Wurttemburg, Germany named of my ancestor was Ulrich Stahlin, Stehlin, Stele..etc..all different surnames..

Bobby I need your help then. I have Stailey in Kentucky and I'm not sure if they link back to Ulrich Stele or not. Do you have a good link for me to study?

Bobby Stelly is Ulrich Stahlin's 9th great grandson.
Ulrich Stahlin→Christian Stählin his son→Johann Stählin, Sr.his son→Johann Stählin his son→Jacques Jean Stelly his son→Jacque Jean Stelly his son→Denis Jerome Stelly his son→F. Stelly his son→J. Stelly his son→E. Stelly his son→M. Stelly his son→B. Stelly his son
This is my possible 6th great grandfather's profile
Illuminations, corrections, and documentation welcome.
I think my branch is the Swiss Staley's.
On this site they note 49 different name spellings!
Do a find on Switzerland Staleys
Erica, your Ulrich is born abt 1700, Bobby's Ulrich is born abt 1600. It is not impossible they had the same ancestors before 1600, but I don't know internet searchpossibilities in Germany and Switzerland, however the dutchman Klaas Jansen, Private User ,administrator of WeRelate, http://www.werelate.org/wiki/User:Ekjansen ,is an enthousiastic genealogist and lives a very longtime in Switzerland.
Johann George Stählin, Jr b 1716 Germany is Bobby Stelly's first immigrant, to Louisiana.
So if they connect with my North Carolina / Kentucky Staleys I think must have been in Europe. ?
Erica I found something that may interested you stated here:
Clan #13:A participant from Louisiana in the USA, with the surname Staley, has a 11/12 match with the Hilterfingen participant (Clan 9), indicating the probability of a shared common ancestry between the two participants. However, further testing indicates that this is a "false positive," as a genetic distance of 21 at the 37 marker level means that there is no common male ancestor for these two participants. The situation is especially likely to happen in the R1b1 haplogroup.
The participant from Louisiana traces his ancestry back to Kentucky in the 19th century.
