Debra Dirks has been nice enough to let me add her Shier files to my blog.  The Canadian Shiers came to North American later than my Henry Shier and his family came to New York City but they are all descended from the same Johann Adam Shier who went to Ireland in 1709.

    Hey, GenealogyGirl,
    Great site. I have descendants of Johann Adam Scheuer in my ancestral background, although they are all “married ins” to my Smyths and Heavenors, so your site is of great interest to me. It is very informative and well-laid out.
    I think that your link to the Nicholas Shier pages above has gotten switched to Henry Shier’s index pages.
    I am trying to sort out the 2 marriages and 17 children of Jacob William Shier, who married Mary Supple and Catherine Heavenor. Not having much luck!
    Cheers, Doreen

    While not related to me, I got a snippet of information from my barber. What I have is this; Al Shier or Shire lived in Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada. He was a WW2 Vet with a remarkable military record, having the record for the number of times he was drooped behind enemy lines. He played the part of a deaf mute and worked in the resistance.
    If anyone can help find this interesting person, I would be most grateful.
