The Descendants of Charles Shaw
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.
