This WV Genealogy Trails website is hosted by Kim Torp.
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

Check your attics!
Dust off your family scrapbooks!
We're looking for DATA for this site!!!

We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build their family trees (rather than the actual trees themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between.

To help us get the data online quickly, it's very helpful to send the data transcribed (rather than sending in a graphic)
