Genealogy has been a major interest since the Schaffer roots were first discovered (see Katharina Schaffer), followed by tracking down the records connecting him to his 5th great grandfather, Patrick Henry, at the urging of his mother, Henry's 4th great granddaughter. This ultimately led to his involvement with the Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation in Red Hill, Brookneal, Virginia (see redhill.com). For an overview with links to various branches of the Schaffer family, go to the biography of his 2nd great grandfather, Andreas.
