A GROUP ENDEAVOR to aggregate historical information about the Shields Family of Brooklyn for posterity--and for our children's children.
MAJOR PROPS and thanks must be heaped upon our venerable family historian and research librarian, the inestimable, Kee Malesky.
FACTS: Francis and Dora Shields bought their Brooklyn limestone home at 244 87th Street in the early 1920s. Chief and Gen (Francis and Genevieve) raised six children here: Dorothy Marie, Joseph, Francis James, Veronica (Ronnie), Genevieve (Vee), and Mary Elizabeth (Betty).
CHECK BACK here for more facts, photos, stories, and lore from their progeny. Enjoy!
