Who we are...
The Sheldon Family Association was founded in 1939 by a group of Sheldon descendants, with the purpose of furthering interest in their heritage and preserving their family history.
The genealogical data with which the SFA began was originally collected by Reverend Henry O. Sheldon, a circuit preacher, as he rode from village to village in the 1800s. Rev. Sheldon documented five apparently unrelated Sheldon families dating back to Colonial times; MORE>
In truth, we have become more of an extended family, sharing the bond of a common heritage and a common purpose.
Breaking News"Breaking news, the codes in the Sheldon Family Association have been tackled and brought to manageable progress!!

This is exciting because it open the possibilities of someday making parts of the data searchable by members after transition, editing and other planned projects are completed.
