Richard was born on 30 November 1945 in Orlando, Florida. He is the son of Lt. Col. Jack W. Dieterle and Margaret Louise Lewis.[1]


The Dieterle paternal line has the haplogroup E-677. E-L677 is also designated E-V22, of which it is said: "E-V22 is found primarily in western Ethiopia, northern Egypt and in the southern Levant. In Europe it is therefore associated with the Phoenicians and the Jews. The Phoenicians could have disseminated E-V22 to Sicily, Sardinia, southern Spain and the Maghreb, and the Jews to Greece and mainland Italy and Spain."[2] The founding of this haplogroup dates to about 11,000 years ago.[3]

Laura Eagleboy has to move herself from guest to member by herself. Is she still using the same email address for her WikiTree account? Abby at wikitree dot com may be able to help her, Richard.

I don't see an immediate relationship to you but I am struck by the name George Dieterle who wrote to a cousin of my father back in the 1930s. His letter is transcribed here:

Hi Richard, Thanks for all of your hard work to correct is appreciated.

Thanks for you work on Hononegah. Just a little note—stickers go *under* Biography line per WikiTree Standards.

Also “see also” after references functions as a bibliography for sources not attached to inline citation. You should not add other subtitles after <references/>. But otherwise great job.

Hi. Could you please share your source for changing Winnebago-1's tribe from Winnebago to Ho Chunk. Thanks
Hi, Richard,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)
