I've lived in West Virginia all my life. I grew up in Preston County, lived in Wood County for 9 years and now live in Barbour County. Most of my ancestors have been in West Virginia for hundreds of years, but my paternal grandmother's family is from Kansas.
I have found Find a Grave to be a great source. In an effort to help others find relatives, I often take pictures of other graves and make memorials when I visit cemeteries. I sometimes transcribe information from books at my local library or local death records. If you come across one of your relatives in my records, let me know. I'll gladly transfer them to you (as long as they are not also mine). I believe they should be maintained by relatives, whenever possible.
My relatives are saved in my virtual cemeteries and also usually include addition biographical information.
