I'm a hobby genealogist who started researching my SHACKFORD family around 1988.  When I couldn't get very far along with my specific family lines, I started trying to piece together all the SHACKFORDs I could find.  My research has come a long way due to the help of a large group of folks who responded to my letters and e-mails, posted information about SHACKFORDs on WEB pages, and openly shared information about the history of their families.  I've done some research at public libraries in Maryland, Michigan, and Texas, purchased books about counties in New Hampshire and Maine and have received countless copies of pages from other folks who are interested in the same family lines.  Lately I've created filing boxes for information that has been collected and sorted it by individual.  This project of connecting all of the SHACKFORDs still has a long way to go and I'd appreciate any help that anyone would like to share.  I can be reached at, via snail mail at Joanne Shackford Parkes, PSC 7 Box 832, APO  AE  09104, or via the phone at (49) (0) 2451-91-3454. 

I just purchased FrontPage and am beginning to share WEB links and questions about the "lost Shackfords" via the InterNET.  I'm a beginner at WEB page building so if you have any advice or suggestions, please feel free to contact me and offer any suggestions.
