This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.
1. Complete the lines from DNA test takers to their associated Principal Sheldon progenitor. (See below)
2. Complete the family group for each profile in that line.
3. Ensure each profile is Genealogically Defined. We need these lines to be well documented in order to confirm by DNA.
4. Review Sheldon Unsourced Profiles for accuracy and source additions.
5. Review Sheldon Pending Merges for completion.
6. Review Sheldon Suggested Changes for possible corrections.
7. Review the Sheldons shown on the page Space: Sheldons in Military. Ensure that their military service is shown accurately on their profiles, with sources. Add military related categories as appropriate. Add Sheldons who have been omitted to the list.
Sheldon Family Tree DNA Project
We need DNA test takers to join WikiTree. This will help us find and compare DNA to confirm lines. WikiTree facilitates autosomal DNA test comparisons through GEDMatch.com and links to Family Tree DNA. Family Tree DNA and YSearch are used to compare Y-DNA tests.
