We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for the Hefner Family Project Patriarch page. (You don’t have to be a test participant to post your family pedigree.)  

There are two ways to make your pedigree available to the project administrator for posting on the Patriarch Page:
1.  Send the pedigree by email directly to in the simplified form described below  (If you send it this way, your pedigree will only be posted on the Patriarch Page, and will not be included in the Pedigree Forum)
Be sure to include
mail address you wish to be posted with the pedigree
                 Kit number of the project participant whose pedigree this is
ame, birthdate, birthplace, spouse for each generation (direct  male line).

2.  Log-in to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum.  By posting your pedigree on the forum, you are making it available for the Project Administrator to post it on the Patriarch Page, along with your contact information, and kit number (or code identity number).

  1. You must be logged in to post on this forum.
    How do I register to post a pedigree?
    I've already registered. How do I log in?

  2.  Please include your Kit number or Code Identity number if you have been tested for the project.

  3. Please read the following instructions, then scroll down to the last posting on this forum and click "reply" in order to post your pedigree.

  4. The pedigree for a Surname Project follows your paternal line.  Please post only the information for each generation:

Full Name of Earliest Known Male Ancestor for this Surname
His birthdate
Spouse’s name

(If you are missing any piece of this information, post another bit of identifying information) 

Suggestions for Posting your Pedigree on this forum:

o        Post four pieces of information for each ancestor

o        Begin with the earliest generation

o        Use standard abbreviations:  m=married, b=born, d=died, c=circa, Co=county, VA=Virginia, GA=Georgia, etc

o        Try to keep to one line per generation

o        Include only generations that have this family surname

o        Provide your name and email address as the pedigree provider

o        Provide the kit number and/or project code identity number if pedigree is for a tested participant

o        Use surname with each generation

o        Don’t use all caps

o        Don’t include anyone whose birthdate is after 1910, for privacy concerns.

o        Don’t number the generations 

Scroll down to the last posting on this forum and click "reply". Post your pedigree in the box provided, and click "Post".    

If you do not see a"reply" tab, it means you have lost your log in and will need to log in again in order to post. Go back to the project home page, log in again, and return to the pedigree forum. Login should hold the second time.

Melchoir Hefner b. 1730 - d. 1795 Lincoln Co. NC

Jacob Hefner b. 01 Nov 1763 Frederick Co. MD - d. 1814 Lincoln Co. NC m. Catherine Unknown

The first two generations have not been proven yet.... We are awaiting DNA tests on Hefner men in the study.

Note: DNA results in 2007 now indicate there is no relationship between the family of Melchoir Hefner above and David Hefner m Esther. There does seem to be a relationship between David Hefner and the early Berks County, Pennsylvania Heffner men i.e. Anthony Heffner d. 1803. Please see the Hefner/Heffner DNA results page.

David Hefner b. Abt. 1790-1800 - d. Abt. 28 Dec 1885 Floyd Co. GA m. prob NC Esther Unknown

George Hefner b. ca. 1829 NC? - d. Bet. 1873 - 1875 Yell Co. AR m. 26 Oct 1865 Gordon Co. GA? Savilla A. Holcombe

In order for me to post your pedigree on the Hefner partriarchs page I need to have a name and email address. I will use the format

John Doe [JohnDoe AT]

Also, if you have someone who tested in the Hefner project and have a kit number would you list that?
