The Shively genealogy researchers are asking for help from the Scheiblen (Scheiblin) families. A request goes out to the Scheiblen (Scheiblin) male members to ask if they would be willing to participate in the Shively Family DNA project. The reason for this request follows as this weeks blog article.
One line of the Shively's descend from established research that has the earliest known ancestor as Michael Shively born 1718 in Eybach, Wurttemberg, Germany. It has been discovered in the Protestant church records In Eybach that the Shively family records there are found under the surname Scheiblen. Johann Michael Scheiblen was born 9-Aug-1718 and was the son of Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler. Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler were married on 25-Jul-1715. Johann Wilhelm was the son of Johannis Scheiblen and Ursulae Dauner. She was the daughter of Michael Buhrler and Magdalena. Johann Wilhem Scheiblen and Barbara Buhrler had another son Johannes Scheiblen who was born 6-Oct-1720. It appears that Barbara Buhrler Scheiblen died on 14-Oct-1721. Johann Wilhelm Scheiblen married a second time on 27-Jan-1722 to Ursula Kuhnlen who was the daughter of Johannis Kuhnlen and Mariae Schiller. From previous research it has been written that Michael Shively came to America in 1738. The Shivelys are hoping that a Scheiblin (Scheiblen) family member will participate in the Shively Family DNA project to see if there is an established relationship between the two surnames.
