The Truth... What is it?

Family Tree

  • Names & characteristics of  The Generations in the USA.
  • the various Shaw family lines in South Carolina, HERE.
  • ***Master File Family Tree Data: all of the below lines & much more, including a master index of over 10,000 Sumter, S. C. and other names in my computer file [as of 6 September2002]. I have discontinued this file for now (as of 2 Aug. 2016). Here was the introduction page on that web site:

    Our Shaw Scotch-Irish heritage has been tremendously influenced by our ancestors' dedication to the cause of being disciples of, and spreading the Gospel of, Jesus of Nazareth, the only begotten son of the God of Abraham (see the coming to America story I've posted at

    I've been motivated and enabled to launch this web site and family tree resource in the sole, bottom-line hope that any visitor might somehow note Jesus elsewhere on the Coming to America website page above and be willing to seek more about Him (the rest of my site has a lot of Christian information).
  • Because of concerns over identity theft, this genealogy website has been made "private" for those still living & does not contain my entire collection of info on each of the over 15,000 names (as of 10/24/05). I am especially eager to add in all Shaw families with a South Carolina reflected on this page However you got to this genealogy web site page, I hope you will check out this message & the site index from the home page and note the religious topics and check them out.
    May God bless you! Ervin Shaw, M. D.
