The Sherbondy Family Association serves as a central source of information on Sherbondy ancestors and relatives by collecting, organizing and sharing genealogical information on Sherbondy ancestors and descendants.


The Association also serves as a cohesive force in bringing together all descendants of Sherbondy families.   This has been accomplished in the past by publishing a newsletter and organizing reunions.   Current plans are to provide information on this web site,  in a future book, and perhaps in newsletters.

Through DNA records, the SFA has recently discovered that Johann Cherpantier (Sherbondy) and Jacob Zimmeman (Carpenter) have the same ancestor.   The DNA of two Sherbondys and two Carpenters match exactly!   We also know that Jacob Zimmerman lived in a German community in the US in the 1700’s (like Johann) in West Virginia and that Jacob has possible heritage from Germany.  Here is a possible relation:
