SHAW, SHAWE, SHOW, SCHAW, SCHEW, SCHEWE, SCHOW,SCHAA, SCHAHE, SCHAU,and any other reasonable spelling variations are welcome to join the project. Only males have Y-chromosomes, so only male SHAW/etc. can participate. If you are female, you can have a male SHAW/etc. relative submit a sample for your line. To participate meaningfully, testees will need to share their direct male line ancestry back to the earliest known SHAW/etc., with a pedigree chart (excluding living persons).
