Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father, etc.) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way.
To Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage (see the Patriarch Page).
To identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches.
Getting Started – DNA / Genetic Genealogy

Joining the Sheets DNA Project
For pricing information, click on the Testing Details page. Our testing company, FamilyTreeDNA, offers discounts from time to time (usally around the holidays). In addition, I also offer special deals on some of the Sheets lines that have no one tested yet. I recommend the 37 market test, however you can always upgrade to more markers at a later date if you wish.
The process is simple. Everything is done by mail. After joining, a DNA collection kit will be mailed to you within a few days. The kit contains cheek swabs for saliva samples. Follow the directions carefully, and mail your kit back along with the signed consent form. Your results will come back in about 6 to 8 weeks and be posted to the results page.
When you are ready to join the project, click here to order a DNA test. Make sure you choose a test under MALE LINE TESTING, which are those that begin with Y-DNA (For example, Y-DNA37 is the 37 marker y-DNA test). Click the Order Now button and follow the instructions from there.
We ask that all members provide a pedigree to be posted on the “Patriarch” page at the project. In addition, we will post the researcher’s name and email address on the Patriarch page, so that in case of a match, others in the project can contact you. The researcher can be a different person than the person being tested, for example, if you are acting as the administrator for a relative who is being tested. When you place an order I will be notified via email that you have joined the project. I will then contact you regarding your pedigree and contact info and answer any questions you may have.
Sheets Lineages Project
This project is to identify and collect GEDCOM and other information on all of the Sheets lines (any spelling
variation) in North America. In phase 1, we are focusing on pre-1850 information. Information we have
gathered so far is in the form of family trees in the Rootsweb World Connect database. See the Patriarchs page
to view these trees by lineage. If you have any corrections or additions with source information, please email
me (Paul) at the address listed at the bottom of this page.
Also, a summary of the lines we’ve identified so far can be found on the Sheets Lineages page at this site.
