Bonjour,  Nous sommes quelques familles en Angleterre et aux Etas Unis qui avons fait  le test Adn de chromosome Y chez FamilyTreeDNA  Nos recherches genealogiques nous ont fait croire nous etre descendus des famillles en France, surtout en Bretagne et peutetre Aquitaine et autre part.. Est-ce qu'il y en a quelqu'un avec le nom de familie Refle, Reyfaule,  Rif(f)ault,, Roufaulle, Rouffel, Roufeille,  Roufil)s).  Rufauld, Ruffauldtt, Ru(f)fault, Ryfault, ou Ryful qui a fait le test de chromosome Y?Nous aimerions beaucoup vous contacter.. .Peut-être sommes-nous des cousins éloignés. Veuillez m'excuser pour mon français tout a fait  insuffisant; Cela fait presque six décennies que je l’ai apprise au lycée. Dans l'attente de vous lire, Edwin Reffell

Hello Edwin! This sounds very interesting, sorry I can’t directly help! Try re-tagging your post to include DNA, pre-1700, and french-roots. And maybe add translation in comment. I too took French a decade ago, it mostly stuck, I think :)

here is what i tried to write in French. Hello, We are some families in England and the USA who have taken ydna tests at FamilyTreeDNA. Our research leads us to believe that we descend from families in France, especially in Brittany and perhaps in Aquitaine and elsewhere. Is there anyone with the surname Refle, Reyfaule,  Rif(f)ault,, Roufaulle, Rouffel, Roufeille,  Roufil)s).  Rufauld, Ruffauldtt, Ru(f)fault, Ryfault, ou Ryful who has taken a ydna test?We would very much like to get in touch with you. Perhaps we are distant cousins. Please excuse my indequate French. It is almost 6 decades since i learnt it at school. looking forward to hear from you, Edwin
