Genealogies

Doddridge County Roots

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.
