Excerpt from Shaw Records: A Memorial of Roger Shaw, 1594-1661

In placing Shaw Records before the public, we feel that some explanation is due to those of the name Who trace their ancestry back to different emigrants from the old countries, but Whose records are not found in this compila tion.

This work when commenced in 1892, was at first intended to embrace all obtainable information of the Shaws of America, Whose lines of ancestry could be identified as com ing from immigrants to our she-res in the earliest Colonial times. But When it was ascertained that instead of the two or three Which was generally believed to be the entire num ber who braved the perils of the sea and sought refuge in the new country at that early period, seven, perhaps eight, would be a more correct estimate of those of the name Who had well established themselves with their families in Ameri can homes near the beginning of the 17th century, and that, at the present time, the Shaws were more numerous than the Smiths or Joneses, then the full magnitude of the projected work became manifest, and redoubled efforts were put forth to obtain the requisite information for a reliable genealogy.
