Yes. They have been intermarrying many hundreds of years. No one can say for sure, how long the practice goes back, but it goes back before they migrated to America from Europe. They were a small religious group of already related, Jesus believing Jews, that have continued to marry amongst each other

The Amish have no problem with electricity, but they worry about what electricity can bring to their homes, such as radio, television, and other things that may connect them with the people they consider "outsiders." They want to be as little connected with "outsiders" as possible. However, some Amish bishops allow a few families to have electric lighting.
