In 1978, the Shirley Association was initiated by me for the purpose of preserving the Shirley heritage for future generations, to unite Shirley descendants of each family branch and to provide assistance to Shirley Association members.

In 1987, the Shirley Association was introduced to the Shirleys of England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Shirley conventions and meetings in the USA and other countries have bridged the distance and the spirit of the Shirley family.

Check the SHIRLEY CONVENTIONS AND MEETINGS on the home page for details about one of our trips as I describe our daily travels, the cemeteries we visited and the experiences we had. I think you will enjoy this site. More stories will appear soon.

March 1998, the Shirley Association was launched into cyberspace to continue the continuity process and to expand our knowledge of the Shirley family.

The Shirley Association has been a member of the International Guild of One Name Studies since 1988. Their world headquarters is based in England.

The Shirley surname is being researched in all of the countries mentioned.

Research assistance and suggestions are welcomed. If you have research or family info to share, we would be happy to receive it.
