Welcome to Sheaffer Family Genealogy!

March 2019

So far this year I have added over 300 names to the tree with many photos having been added as 
well. I expect to continue adding more names through March as I continue to combine by 
Warren/Wagner/Maxwell Lines and my Knaub/Sollenberger lines. 

February 2019

Age/Burial Update: 
I have been slowly updating many of the ancestors names to include Burial/Cemetery information 
and the persons Age at Death. I find it more informative for the researcher to see this right 
up front. I try to have matching source records to confirm all dates and information so an easy 
click on the records should confirm my information.

Knaub DNA Connection:
I have recently through DNA tests confirmed that my father (Michael Zlatar) biological father 
was most likely James R Knaub. Several DNA connections through his direct line highly confirm 
this and from this evidence I have decided to add the Knaub family tree onto this site. If 
anyone doubts a Knaub relationship please feel free to contact me with any concern.

January 2019:

DNA Connections: in 2013 I took a Ancestry DNA test hoping to connect with other 
Sheaffer's to verify that we were related. After 6 years i have gotten a lot more 
than I would have imagined with the results. I have found a Sister, a 
Grandfather, an adopted out 1st cousin, an adopted out 2nd-3rd cousin , and many more 
cousins that I did/did not know. I have come to accept DNA genealogy as just 
another tool for genealogists to use as a source now, and I have begun to format it 
into this tree. 

New Additions: I have made quite a few new additional lines to include not limited to 
just my line but many collateral lines. Several notable lines include Wagner, Warren, Knaub, 
Clouser with more to follow

Files: I have begun incorporating large 
family files to the file location for 
anyone interested 
downloading. I expect to have more 
available throughout the next several
