The SheldonDNAProject Surname Project


The Sheldon Family Association was founded in 1939 for the purpose of stimulating interest in, and perpetuating the history of, the Sheldon/Shelden family in the USA. For more information on the SFA, visit We are cooperating with the FTDNA testing site to study the DNA of Sheldon descendants in order to attempt to discover common ancestors. The goal of the project is to see if DNA testing can discover a link between the early Sheldon Ancestors or Progenitors. Particularly useful is the testing of men with the surname Sheldon. Combined with traditional genealogical research the results can be compared to other Sheldon men. Using genetics and the markers on the Y chromosome, similar patterns may become clear. We urge Sheldon men to submit a test sample to FTDNA for the 25 or 37 marker test. The objectives: 1) Identify the DNA of the original 4 or 5 Colonial Sheldons. 2) Determine if any of the original 4 or 5 Colonial Sheldons are relat4ed. 3) Assist members in proving their relationship to one or more of the 4 or 5 original Colonial Sheldons. 4) Determine the English ancestry of the original 4 or 5 original Colonial Sheldons. 5) Encourage greater participation in the SFA DNA project by our members and our English cousins.
