Mark Skaife (1967- ) is a noted Australian motor racing driver. He is a five-time winner of the V8 Supercar Championship and six-time winner of the Bathurst 1000.
Sydney Harold Skaife (1889-1976) was an eminent South African entomologist and naturalist. He lived most of his life in Hout Bay on the Cape Peninsula.
Thomas Skaife (1806-1876) was a British inventor most famous for his pistol-shaped camera design. He operated a photographic studio (Skaife's Pistolgraph Depot) near Regent's Park in London, England.
The electronically published records for the 1880 U. S. Federal Census of three major Census transcribing companies were examined; the records for SKAIFEs were counted as well as (for informative purposes) SCAIFEs. Results are tabulated below:
1880 U. S. Fed. Census results for SKAIFE individuals *exact spelling*
1880 U. S. Fed. Census results for SCAIFE individuals *exact spelling*!
SKAIFEs were mainly in the Mid-West and on the West Coast
SCAIFEs were mainly in Arkansas, in the South and on the East Coast
There were over five-times as many SCAIFEs enumerated in 1880 in the USA as there were SKAIFEs
There is not just one SKAIFE DNA Project. As of mid-May 2019 separately administered projects (under the surname SCAIFE) exist at:
FamilyTreeDNA SKAIFE and using FamilyTree DNA laboratory as SCAIFE
