This site was created by Larry Shively who is researching the history of the Shively families. The goal is to have a site where all Shively researchers can share and ask questions in regards to their Shively lines. The largest majority of the Shively family records are located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. There are early records of Shively's also in Virginia and Kentucky. There are not many established Shively lineages back to Europe. There are documented lineages to Switzerland and Germany. Through the sharing of information from all of our research it is desired that all can learn about our Shively families.

  1. One small change, Larry: Next to where you have the marriage certificate of Archibald and Mary (Sutton) Shively and you mention my name as a contributor, you should probably have "Thanks of appreciation are sent "his" way", instead of "her". No big deal -- just wanted to clarify.
