The Shetter Surname Project
Members of the Shetter(s)/Shutter(s)Schetter and related families are organizing this DNA project to determine if the many variations of these surnames are derived from the original settler, Jacob Schotter who arrived in York County, Pennsylvania in the mid 1700s. It is believed that these surnames may be some of Jacob Schotter descendants. For various reasons, these names were misspelled and/or miss-pronounced by later generations and became essentially new names. Any variation of this name is urged to join our group.
