A German connection?
As our anthropology compares notes on all aspects of aspie life, one the points that really sticks out is a German connection. Many of us can trace our heritage to Germany someplace. We have lots of people in our group still in Germany and Europe. My own lineage comes from the German-Swiss border area. Thanks to my stepmothers genealogy efforts we have narrowed down lots of genealogy issues to a large degree. I can see shared names in her work, and our anthropology.
It seems lot of our ancestors made it to the East coast of America and then settled all over Pennsylvania and Ohio. Gahanna Ohio now a suburb of Columbus was one of the stopping points, From there they went on west. On the other end of world, many of our Counterparts in the aspie anthropology are from Australia and of course many of them also share the same German roots.
Of course, I have no idea what causes autism but it seems to run in families. I remember hearing about quite a few Autism cases in New Jersey not too long ago and again there is an area where many of my ancestors settled. Perhaps some day when all the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted this might actually be a clue of some type.
