I am the newCounty Coordinator forMonongalia County.
I volunteered to update this website from a long period of inactivity. Please
bear with me as I change the format and verify links. I hope you will give in
return, as well. If you have something that you would like to contribute,
please contact me and I will add it to these pages. Thanks!
I hope that this will help you to get to know the Monongalia GenWeb as part
of theWest Virginia,
US and World GenWeb network and understand how we all should be stewards of all
of our family histories, guardians of our ancestors and protectors of their
heritage and their last plat of land. We all are Coordinators keep the research
progressing and accessible to all. The power and authority of solid and
scholarly research is using the records. Records have been lost enmass, more records
are being lost daily all over theUnited States. Individually we do
the best we can which is always less that some of what all others
accomplish, together we can make use of our time progress more quickly and
accomplish more within this life than we could by ourselves. This is what the
Gen Web is all about. But too many people only take information they find
relevant to their ancestor. What are everyone just volunteered to provide the
entire name in the page before and the page after as well as the page that they
were studying - not a total verbatim account but an index of names, localities
and dates. We would progress to compiling a genealogical index based upon
sources from which we can all draw.
Thanks to our previous Coordinators for their hard work:
