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.
