Doddridge County Roots - A West Virginia Genealogy

Doddridge County Roots - A West Virginia Genealogy:
This is a genealogy focusing on North Central West Virginia, particularly Doddridge County and, to a lesser extent, the nearby counties of Ritchie, Harrison, Lewis, Gilmer, Tyler, Wetzel and Calhoun.
This project evolved from a simple family tree of the Gaston and Husk families who settled in Doddridge County in the mid-1800s. Over the years, it has grown to include over 113,000 individuals and to encompass the genealogies of many other families in the region, including those found in the "Top 100 Surnames" list below.
To the extent that our filtering software allows, the names of living people under the age of 85 are 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.
The information set forth here is the product of many years of research, both by us and by the many dedicated and selfless genealogists who came before us. It is now presented to the genealogy community and general public in that same spirit of sharing and helpfulness. Our reward is the knowledge that we have likely helped others find an elusive piece in the puzzle that is their own ancestry.

James Quinn: A Circuit Rider's Journal

James Quinn: A Circuit Rider's Journal: Video
West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church
Reverend James Quinn was an early Ohio circuit rider.  He grew up in Western Pennsylvania, a son of John Quinn and Sarah Henthorn. After his death his journal was published and the proceeds went to support of his widow and children. There is a copy of the journal in the collections of The Library of Congress, that yours truly viewed more than twenty years ago.

Information about the family of James Quinn is included in the "pafsma" file of researcher, Richard E. Henthorn.

Letters Written to Rev. Daniel Hitt include some by Rev. James Quinn and several Henthorn ladies. I make these documents available on this webpage.

James and Mary Quinn - this is a 34-page descendant PDF starting with these ancestors of Rev. James Quinn.

Chronicling America at The Library of Congress

This is a link to the digital newspaper archive at The Library of Congress.

The Spirit of Democracy was published once a week at Woodsfield, Monroe Co., OH. I think publication ran from 1844-1994. However, it looks like only the issues from 1844-1886 are available at The Library of Congress.

Noted Monroe county genealogy researcher, Catharine (Foreaker) Fedorchak, wrote a weekly genealogy column that appeared in this newspaper. Many volumes of her work, have been published by the Monroe County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, and are still available from the society.

I'm using the Google Chrome browser and the Blog This extension to create the posts to the blog. When a webpage of interest is displayed on the screen I click on the Blog This icon in the second line at the top of the screen. This opens a blog post window with the URL automatically inserted in to the post that I am about to create.

The URL for this blog is: mrdickieslinks.blogspot.com

Currently, anyone with the link can access the blog.

Use the sidebar information to help you find topics of interest.

I'm interested in your feedback about whether you like or dislike this method.
