I have the following information about the Shaw family as it relates to my family tree on Rootsweb.Com, World Connect Project, database: wgrubb98. Most of the information is derived from family records, Census or Church records found online at If it is possible I would like to know my grandmother's family tree better than I do now. I would appreciate any information or hints that can be provided.
