Welcome

My name is Ray Shively. This website was created in order to exchange genealogical data with other interested family-researchers. The most common surnames contained here are listed in the “GEDCOM Statistics” below.  This site’s pages are generated from a MySQL database by PhpGedView as you request them.  There may be a slight delay as the data loads, however the information is always up-to-date with my research. 

I have been interested in our family history for many years and have been collecting information. However, I have only been organizing it since early 2005. Fortunately, I have found several other family members interested in genealogy that have done extensive research on particular lines of the family. I take no credit for their work with the Letterst, Masters, Mitchell, Schwarz, Utz, Sheriff, Shivley & much of the Shively families.

Almost all of my information contained here is from secondary sources. I am continuing to gather information and primary sources - any help you can offer would be deeply appreciated.  Use the contact link at the bottom of any page.

In order to protect the privacy of living members of our family, you will need a user name and password to see information on living individuals related to you.  You will also need to log-in to see the source material.

Although I have been careful, I am sure there are mistakes contained in this material, in both typos and relationships. I would be deeply appreciative of individuals who email me with any further information and/or corrections.

DNA links Adams County, Ohio Shiveley\'s to Kentucky Shiveley\'s
10 September 2014 - 12:37:47am

Ray Shively\'s DNA testing has verified what has long been suspected. Daniel Shiveley of Adams County, Ohio born about 1782 in Pennsylvania is almost certainly a son of John Shiveley, Sr. who died in 1839 in Pendleton County, Kentucky. The line has been tracked back to Jacob Schäublin born about 1650 in Waldenburg, Switzerland. This information is included here in this database. Daniel Schaublin, John’s grandfather, and his family and brother immigrated to Philadelphia on September 28, 1749 on the ship Ann. Alice Shivley Freed has done much of the research on the Kentucky family line. She has recently published a book The Family of Jacob Schäublin and Maria Martin, Waldenburg, Switzerland, 1650 and their Shively, Shiveley, Shivley Descendents.
Another Exciting DNA Match!
10 June 2012 - 2:22:17am

Daniel SHIVELY is an exact 12 marker DNA match with me Raymond SHIVELY. He can prove his ancestor is Peter Shively born 1810 and Sarah who died 12-Aug-1881 in Ionia County, Michigan. They were married 10-Apr-1828 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. It is not proven but believe this Peter Shively was the son of Daniel Shively from Jefferson County, Ohio.
