Welcome to the state of West Virginia.  

Welcome to West Virginia, Trails To The Past.  I am Charlie , your State Administrator.  I am here to serve you.  My goal is to add  family history to this site with the goal of making our site one of the best, if not the best, West Virginia genealogy / historical sites on the internet.

I would be honored to include your family history to this project.


HISTORY


West Virginia was a part of the state of Virginia. However, it was geographically separated by mountains. In 1861 and 1862, during the Wheeling Conventions, the people of present-day West Virginia voted to secede from Virginia once it had seceded from the Union and President Abraham Lincoln recognized the 35th state which was formally formed on 20 Jun 1863. West Virginia was one of two states formed during the Civil War (the other being Nevada) and was the only "state" to secede from another Confederate State.


BOOKS

One of  our projects at West Virgnia, Trails To The Past is transcribing and posting West Virginia Historical Books that are in the Public Domain (Not under Copyright protection).  At this time I have several books I plan to put online.  This is more of an editing / formatting / proofing  documents converted from PDF (Acrabat Adobe) files.  Two of the books are listed below.  Please contact Charlie if you would like more information on this project.

A Reminiscent History of Northern West Virginia

West Virginia and its People
