Our Access Policy- Please understand that some information is only accessable to members of The Shipleys of Maryland, and not to the public at large. Two considerations guide our accessability approach- first, much of our information represents the culmination of almost a century of work by members of the clan. The underlying past and our ongoing research have taken much time, effort and money. This information is central to our mission and the family’s most valuable asset. Second, we are cognizant of the risk of identity theft and other misuse of our data, and limiting access helps counteract this risk.
