The usefulness of genealogy information is often a function of the way in which it is
presented.  We therefore present our information in several formats.

For the most part, it's the same information, but a different format sometimes provides
a perspective that makes it easier to find an obscure ancestor or to understand the
relationships.  The various formats also have their own inherent strengths and
weaknesses, some of which are mentioned below.  We suggest that you sample each
of the formats to find the one that best suits you.  If you have a particular interest in one
specific individual, you may find it useful to view that person's entry in all formats.

To the extent that our filtering software allows, the names of living people under the
age of 80 are usually changed to read "Living," with personal details suppressed.  If
you are searching for yourself or another living person, look first for a parent or
grandparent, keeping in mind that women are always indexed by their maiden name.  
A good place to start is with one of the Group Sheet formats below.

Format: Pedigree & Descendant Charts w/ photos (101,341 entries; updated 09/30/15)
Individual details and source citations are complete and well-integrated.
Charts are interactive and customizable for generation depth and display format, and
can show either pedigree or descendancy, but they sometimes tend to load slowly.
Multiple photos per person.  Click on photo link to view full-size in new browser window.

CEMETERIES

This is a listing of all the West Virginia
cemeteries mentioned in these reports,
along with the names and dates of
people known to be buried there.

In some cases, when the specific
cemetery has not been determined, only
the city of burial is listed.

Only the burials of  those people who
appear in our genealogies are listed,
along with the name of their spouse
(most recent if married more than
once).  Inclusion of a spouse's name
does not necessarily mean that the
spouse is buried in the same cemetery
or is even deceased.

For burials of people not included in our
genealogies, try one of the West Virginia
cemetery websites on our links page.

For more information on any of the
individuals listed here, and perhaps a
photo of them or their headstone, see
their entry in one of the Pedigree or
Group Sheet formats to the left.
