to West Virginia, Trails To The Past, a member of TrailsToThePast.org.
My name is Charlie and I am the State
Administrator for this site.
purpose is to provide a site dedicated to West Virginia history
and genealogy (this includes Virginia before statehood) by focusing on
West Virginia families.
Similar sites seem to focus on collecting data like
census, cemeteries, wills, military records, etc. This is excellant,
this approach the site could have information on the same person in
multiple places. Our goal is to provide family group pages (FGP) that
will link all of these pages in one location. For example, John Doe has
a family group page which contains information from census data, his
tombstone, his will, and a biography. With our approach, the FGP would
contain links to each of these sources. Plus each source (if part of
this site) will have a link to the FGP. Our hope is that this will make
researching our site easier for our visitors.
This site is
dedicated to those who have been part of West Virginia (and Virginia)
History and Genealogy.
This will include people who have never lived in West Virginia, but
ancestors or descendants lived / married / died here.
is no limits on the number of generations of "Non-West Virginians" that
listed on the website because they all have ties to the state. Again,
hope is to make researching our site easier for our visitors.
bookmark this site and come back for visits. Hopefully, we will
be able to assist your research.
