Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way.

George J. Pfau (1834-1898) is my children's maternal 2X-great-grand father.  He was born in Wuerttemberg, Germany.  He married Mary A. Shutz in 1857 in Tuscarawas Co., Ohio.  They raised a family of nine children.  He died in 1898 and is buried in Fort Laurens Cemetery, in Bolivar, Tuscarawas Co., Ohio. 

This Pfau Family Project is started to: 1. Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage  (See the Patriarch Page) 2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches If you are a Pfau male we encourage your participation by submitting your pedigree and ordering a test.  Let's help each other research this interesting family!
