The Sheldon Family Association will be meeting in Quincy, Massachusetts in September of 2021. We are so looking forward to seeing our Sheldon cousin's next fall! We will be meeting in the same location as we had planned for 2020.

The hotel is the Best Western Adams Inn, 29 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA. We have a group rate room block for the nights of the 15th through the 20th at the rate of $109 per night plus tax. The hotel has an onsite pub, free breakfast, free parking, onsite laundry, easy access to public transportation, and a shuttle to and from Logan Airport in Boston. Our annual meeting will be at the hotel on Sunday, Sept 19, beginning at noon. Reservations can be made directly with the hotel by calling (617) 328-1500. Ask for group sales and mention the Sheldon Family Association. Reservations for the group rate need to be made by August 15, 2021. For more information on the hotel and the Quincy area, please see

Activities for the group include visiting the Adams Historical Park in Quincy to visit the birthplaces of John Adams and John Quincy Adams. This is a National Historical Park, and part of the National Park Service. We will also visit Plimoth Patuxet (formerly Plimoth Plantation) living history museum that tells the story of the original settlement of the Plymouth Colony established in the 17th century by the English Pilgrims. We will also have a researcher from the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston give us a presentation relating to the Sheldon Family. The day and time of the presentation has not been finalized, but we will let you know when we have the final date! We are very excited for the opportunity to hear from a NEHGS researcher, who also happens to be a Sheldon descendant! Of course, there will be free time in the reunion schedule to visit the area on your own, do family research, enjoy a day in Boston or on the Cape, or get a sneak peek at the early fall leaves.

We hope to see you in Quincy in 2021!
