Stateler Surname DNA Research Project
Posted by: Sandra Hall (ID *****1494) Date: January 04, 2003 at 06:39:53

I am coordinating a DNA project for the possibly related surnames of Stadler Statler Stetler Stotler and other variations.

When I published the Statler/Stetler/Stotler Newletter in 1986 and 1987 I set up 17 Groups based on their residence in 1790. I have not yet been able to connect any of those groups. I believe that 13 of these Groups have living male descendants.

Y chromosome testing could answer some of the questions such as:
Do the Stateler families share a common ancestor with Casper Statler or any of the Stetler or Stotler Families?
Do the Stotlerís of Morgan County West Virginia share a common ancestor with Casper Statler of Somerset County PA. Do the Statlerís in Missouri relate to the Statlerís in PA?
Do the Stadler families who came from Europe in the 1800ís or 1900ís match the Statlerís in PA before 1790?

Y chromosome testing provides only information about an unbroken male line, a man, his father, grandfather and on back so it is very suited for surname studies. No health information is obtained by the test.
The test is usually made by collecting cells from the inside of the cheek with a small brush.

I am very concerned with privacy issues and would do to meet any privacy issues. Unless a person is willing I will not share their name with anyone else. Of course I need to share the name of the ancestor.

Please write if you have questions and know of someone who would be interested in taking the test.
