Thank you for considering a donation to
Shirley research!

Membership dues cover webhosting costs, genealogy database subscriptions, and the periodic fixes to our message board among other costs. Most research costs, for the past 30 years, have been absorbed by the two Shirley Association administrators. Your contributions will help offset these research costs to continue to find some of those elusive Shirley answers!!! - Ken

You can donate "in memory" of your Shirley family member by sending me an email containing the details. I'll post your tribute below!
