The purpose of this project is to determine possible relationships between the various lines regardless of how we spell the name around the world. By using a simple DNA test we hope to find out which family members share which common ancestors. This includes but is not limited to the lines listed in the group name.

Some of the earliest family members we know of are one George Scoggin who emigrated from England in the 1650s. Another is Johan Scoggin/Schaggen who came from Sweden in the 1640s. It appears we have an emigrant from England in the 1800s whose results seem to tie in with the others we suspect derive from George of the 1600s. There are probably other immigrants and we would love your help in identifying them. We also know of quite a few early Scoggins/Scoggans in England we hope to connect to.
