Welcome to my constantly changing genealogy website - it is very much a work in progress as I sort through information obtained over many years. If you believe we have a common ancestor, I hope that you will contact me so we can compare and share info. I may have more info than appears here and can provide more detailed source references. Additional information and corrections are both appreciated.

For the most part, this site only includes persons I believe to be deceased. As a result, some events, like marriages, that involve two persons will be excluded if one of the persons is marked as still living in my database. However, it is possible that the living person's name will show up in a source citation if the record of the marriage is used as a source document for another event.

As of 23 March 2018 ...
• The secure “https” protocol is now available for the site, meaning that you can access it using https://www.wv-heritage.com/. What this means to you is that the session between the web server that hosts my site and your browser is encrypted to provide more security.
• If you have previously saved any links to specific people, please use one of the indexes to find each individual and replace the old link with the new one. For more info, check out the General Updates for 23 March 2018.

A quick navigation tip - these limited indexes will save time if you are only interested in one of my lines:

On the other hand, if you want to see an index of all the individuals on this site, use the Surname Index. You can also use the Search Feature to search for specific names, places or other key words.

In the interest of protecting privacy:

  • Detailed information regarding living persons has been excluded from this site. However, living persons may appear in photos or be included in transcripts of commonly available records such as obituaries.
  • I have also limited the level of source information published here - no addresses, telephone numbers, etc.

Refer to the updates page for a list of the most recent updates; and remember that the date last edited appears on each person's page.

Most of all ... Have fun digging into your past!
