Bio and Links
Bio Photo ORVF has been a pioneer of online genealogy since 1997. Author and family historian A.David Distler created the website after his book titled "Ohio River Valley Families" was published in early 1997. ORVF was, and still is, a digital archive for many additions and corrections to the book.

The database is very comprehensive, remaining focused on related individuals, their ancestors and descendants, who once settled the Ohio River Valley. A few notables in this database are George W Bush and George H W Bush, Louis Capet (King Louis VII of France), Daniel Boone, Stephen Hopkins and Francis Cooke (of the Mayflower), Zachary Taylor, Dwight Eisenhower, Ulysses S Grant, Jefferson Davis, Virginia Katherine McMath (Ginger Rogers), Myra MayBelle Shirley (Belle Starr), James Madison, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D Roosevelt and Richard Nixon.

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called Edits - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Thank you for all your work - I remember connecting with you when my son was still a toddler via the ORVF group. He will be 18 this year. . . How the time flies.
