I am Donna Keener from Preston County, WV. I have been researching my family for about 20 years now. I have nearly 50,000 names in my database. I am researching Keener's, Ayersman's, Shay's, Wright's, Sidwell's, Squire's, Comb's, Trickett's, Mitter's, Street's, Benson's,
and many others. I have published two cemetery books on Preston County. I have added the material from volume I, which is no longer in print.
I will be happy to enter any links that you are willing to provide to me, or will attach any obituaries that you wish to send to me.
Per Find-a-grave guidelines, "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Be sure to explain your relationship in the request! Any relatives who are more distantly related to you are not required to be transferred."
When requesting updates or transfers, please use the EDIT TAB on the right hand side of the memorial page so that a direct link to that individual is provided for the update.
Please do not send me information from Census records to be posted in the bio!!!!! There are enough sources online with census information that I feel that it individuals should be able to find that info without placing it in Find-A-GRAVE.
I would encourage anyone researching family members in Preston County to visit the Terra Alta Library. I've been working with them for the last 15 years trying to build their genealogy materials. They have a nice microfilm reader. They have a complete set of film from Preston County's newspapers. They also have partial collections for Taylor County, Barbour County, Marion County, and Tucker County. They have collected obituaries from the Dominion Post and have them indexed and in binders. They also have collected and bound the civil war series that was printed in the Preston County newspapers.
