* The Gaffney - Shaw Ancestral Home Page*

Updated September 5, 2000

I have just started creating a Family Tree based on my parents.I am researching the ancestors of

Moira Catherine SHAW bn.17.02.1943 @ Edinburgh, Scotland,UK
Charles GAFFNEY bn.13.06.1938 @ Dunbar, Scotland,UK.

Unforunately I am at an early stage and do not know what census either the Gaffney's or Shaw's first appeared in however I believe the SHAW's are originally from Scotland and the GAFFNEY's from Southern Ireland

The oldest records I have obtained so far are that on my mother's side my Great Great Grandfather, namely Archibald Donald SHAW, married Charlotte Emily Andrews on June 5th. 1891 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

On my father's side I only know that my Grandfather, namely Charles GAFFNEY, married Christina Cowan Pettigrew in Dunbar, Scotland (date currently unknown).

Any information would be greatly appreciated and in return I would be delighted to share what information I have.
