The Acuff-Ecoff surname is relatively unusual, but we have no documentation for sure where it originated. As a result of DNA testing, we can now identify at least three different lineages: Scandinavian, German, and British (probably England/Scotland border). DNA testing has also helped us identify a better structure for how the major branches in the United States are related. Our research goal is to identify and correctly connect to the family tree every person who ever lived who had one drop of Acuff-Ecoff blood in him/her. Won't you help us by submitting your DNA sample for comparison to those Acuff-Ecoff descendants we have tested? Thanks -- we appreciate your interest and support.
