SFA 2017 Reunion, Aurora Ohio

The 2017 annual reunion and meeting will be held in Aurora, OH. The dates are August 13 through August 17, 2017. We have rooms blocked at The Aurora Inn, which is located at 30 Shawnee Trail, Aurora, Ohio. Aurora was chosen because of the Deed House of Ebenezer Sheldon (S1909). The Aurora Historical Society has moved and restored the Deed House and it now serves as the visitor center.

It is not too early to think about reserving your room at the Aurora Inn for the Sheldon Reunion August 13 – 17, 2017.  Call 1-330-562-0767 and tell them you are with the Sheldon group. Special Room rates for reunion are:

Double Room (2 queen beds) $99+tax
King Room (1 King size bed) $109+tax

Also, please bring any posters, pictures or objects related to Sheldons that you would like to share with the group.  We have a nice display area where they may be shared for any portion of the time we are at the Aurora Inn.  We would also love to hear about your research either in Short Talk (10 min.+5 min. for questions) or a longer speech (about20min.)  Contact Alberta @bertd02@rochester.rr.com if you would like to do this.

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>

But the SFA has become much more than a surname-based genealogy society. Over the years, as descendants of these Sheldon families have met annually in various locations MORE >

In truth, we have become more of an extended family, sharing the bond of a common heritage and a common purpose.

Take a few minutes to learn more about the Sheldon Family Association, and its long history, activities and resources. And if you have a Sheldon ancestor, please request a free search MORE>
