Virginians & West Virginians, 1607-1870, Volume 1 - Patrick G. Wardell.
This popular volume provides vital statistics on people born in Virginia or West Virginia as drawn from the three biographical volumes of the six-volume work, History of Virginia (American Historical Society: Chicago and New York, 1924). This set can be found in many large libraries, but lacks an index and thus is seldom used by genealogists. Data is provided on nearly 20,000 people. Every person indicated to be a Virginia or West Virginia native has an entry. Each entry includes the full name of the subject, date and place of birth, names of parents and spouses to the extent that this information is given in the original text. A surname index to the family articles in the original volumes is included for those wishing to seek out the additional biographical data that is often included. Most of the people were born in the nineteenth century.
