This web site exists to facilitate research into the Sheldon Family History around the world. After some introductory pages which explain both how this web site works and also some background to the Sheldon name (and it's common variants such as Shelden and Scheldun), we divide the rest of the site into geographical regions.
Most of the content of this web site is very parochial and limited to my own researches. There is very little information from other sources. I had hoped to build this into a world wide resource, but have not had the time to carry this out. Please recognise the limited usefulness of this site, and if someone else wishes to take it forward, please let me know. (Mike Sheldon, April 2013) . All access and resources are made avaliable free of charge, however if you have any contribution to make please don't hesitate to get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org)

As with all genealogical research it is important to verify any facts from as many alternate sources as possible. Much of the original information has to be researched at its source, or purchased from on-line resources and so is not available free on the internet. Our aim is to provide as many free resources as possible, and then indicate where other information may be found.
We encourage all genuine Sheldon researchers to contribute their material to this site so that we may all benefit from each others efforts. We will not enter into any correspondence with informal enquirers, but if you are genuinely researching some part of the Sheldon family, and will contribute your own resources, then we can enter into a dialogue for mutual benefit.
