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. My GG grandfather was Michael Shively, h. of Nancy Payne. Were Michael’s parents Michael and Hannah Harding? Michael and Nancy’s daughter Samintha Payne married Joel Payton Rivers, yielding Edward Franklin Rivers and my father Kenneth. Any help on Michael's ancestry will be appreciated.
