SHAW of Kilsyth

From extractions by Ken STEWART from the Parish Registers of Kilsyth, Stirling, Scotland for the years 1686 to about 1737. They are supplemented through the use of the IGI with register batch numbers.

My thanks also to the many others who have contributed their family data. They are mentioned in the tree with their email addresses ….….

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This tree is provided to family historians without prejudice. I have constructed most of my family trees using the data I have available, and in a few cases it is estimated as the best fit from available choices. In this tree, several of the links are yet to be proved, so any help that you can give to confirm any line would be appreciated by me and others searching in this family. More modern families also need your inputs, because as I can link modern families to each other, and thus it enables a focus on their common ancestry. The memories of one branch may not be complete, but yet may fill in gaps of another branch. Only by a concerted effort can we really define the true lineage. Help me to help you by sharing what you have. I have included the contributor's email addresses within the file. My thanks to you all. Ken STEWART < kjstew@iinet.net.au >
