A Tribute to my Ancestors - And a Legacy to my Children

     Welcome to my Shaw Lineage Page. I have been working on this line for a few years now. This page would be incomplete if it were not for so may distant cousins who have contributed both their time and research to make this page what it is today. My special thanks to Andy Cummins.  I believe that all the information below is correct, but if you find any discrepancies, please email me. I hope you find the information below helpful to you.

     Please remember each bit of information found here, or elsewhere, must be researched and proven by weight of evidence, via you, the researcher.
