The Schieffelin Surname Project
This Y-DNA Surname Project is open to all with the Surname Schieffelin, including all close surname variants: Scheuffelin, Scheufelen, Schaufelein, Schauffelin, Scheffelin, Schauffele, Scheifelin, Schenfelein, Schenflein, Schoyffelin, etc. or additionally those who have been tested and may have a close genetic link to the surname. Note: This is a Y-DNA project, thus it is for male line descendants taking a Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) test. The individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111 test and who has one of the surnames listed for the project (or a close variant). Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA. Females who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test. Females can also order an mtDNA test such as the mtDNAPlus test or the mtFullSequence test and participate in an mtDNA project. Both men and women may take our autosomal Family Finder test to discover recent relationships across all family lines.
