MAKE A START

Gather together everything you have... papers, photos, documents and family heirlooms.  
Then check with your relatives to see if they have any family documents they are willing to share. Clues to your family history might be found on the backs of old photographs, in the family bible, or even on a postcard..

COLLECT RECORDS

Now you have made a start by collecting family records, the next step is to interview relatives. Start with Mum and Dad and then move on from there to Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles etc. Try to collect stories, not just names and dates.
Ask if they have any old Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates.

MAKE A TREE

Write down everything you have learned from your family and begin to enter the information into a Family Tree Computer program. There are many different ones to choose from, the most popular are Roots Magic and Family Historian .

Sheldon DNA

DNA PROJECT

Many of the American Sheldons originate from the Derbyshire Sheldons from Bakewell. Are all Sheldons related in some way ? or are there 3 or 4 different Sheldon groups. We are trying to find DNA links between other Sheldon areas such as Devon and the West Midlands area. We are looking for Sheldon males that can prove their linage back to 1800, to be tested. There may be some funding available towards the cost of the test.
The USA Sheldons are co-ordinating the research and a number of English and American Sheldons have been tested already
