Shaw file last updated on 20 June 1998
The Descendants of
of Harrison County, (West) Virginia
Compiled by David R. Heise
I am researching the Shaws of Harrison County and compiling my
research and others, and have made available the results at this site.
You may use the results of that research for the purpose of genealogy
only. I only ask that you contact me and provide to me any
corrections, additions, or updates that you possess so that I can
include it in my "hard copy/printed report", and that you
include me as a source at least once (i.e. "Compiled by David R.
Heise, Descendants of Charles Shaw of Harrison County, (West)
Virginia"). If you are a Shaw, or are directly related to a
Shaw, and are willing to reimburse me for the photo copy costs and
mailing costs, then I can send you a "hard copy/printed report" which
includes the current generation and their children (where known), and
include sources for vital information like marriage and sometimes
births and deaths. This source information would be the county
courthouse records including volume and page number. Not everyone got
married in the county that they applied for a license in. You should
be prepared to convince me that you are a Shaw descendant and are
seeking the data for genealogy purposes only.
I am responsible for the submission to Broderbund's World Family
Tree Volume 7, Tree Number 1791. If there are differences between that
submission and what is recorded here, then the data on this site is
more accurate and up-to-date.
When you go to the Shaw file, it includes some 799 individuals and
119 individuals with the last name of Shaw, so it may take from 1 to 2
minutes to load, depending on the speed of your modem, be patient.
