Here you will find lots of information that I have accumulated about many different family trees.

The site is based upon  the English and Irish parish and civil entries for surnames originally written (or later transcribed) as - Sheeky, Sheekey, Sheehy, Sheekly, Sheekie, Sheety, Sheeley, Shekey, Sheckey, Sheakey, Sheehys, Cheakey, Cheekey, Cheeky, Shiekey, Streekey, etc - from the days when writing was personal and spelling was flexible. It has also benefited greatly from the shared efforts of many other family researchers and interested family members.

The main locations covered are in England - Bradford, Birkenhead, Barrow in Furness, Chester, Stalybridge, Ashton under Lyne, London - and Boyle, Roscommon in Ireland. The site does not contain a full, worldwide, one-name study but it does get close and provides a large percentage of the known references to this group of surnames.

I hope you find something here that is a small help when researching your family history. Certainly tracing my mother’s family history has been an experience that has put today’s minor problems into some sort of perspective. All of data here is freely available - and if you check out our commercial links it will help keep the web site going - good luck and fruitful searching.
