appalachian ancestry journal

Appalachian Ancestry Journal
Blog type: Appalachian genealogy, Individual family history, West Virginia Genealogy

I’ve been a freelance writer, magazine editor, home schooling mom, and cooking instructor in a summer program for Appalachian kids. I’ve worked as an historical interpreter in museums in Ohio and California and have a degree in history from The Ohio State University. I studied 19th century American women’s history and focused on the history of medicine, childbirth and domestic life. I am a quilter and doll maker.

I started collecting stories and family history in my early twenties and I’m so glad my love of history made me write down those stories. I find myself as one of the elders of the family in my early fifties because most of those storytellers of my youth are gone.

My areas of interest and research:


Workman, Pauley, Nelson, Janney, Chambers, Cole, Thompson, Brown, Griffin, White, McCallister, Nickel, Curry, McNeely, Barnett, Doran, Shadow, Moon, Woertman, Seals/Sayles, Smith

Boone County, Cabel County, Raleigh County, Logan County WV. Monroe, Greenbrier, Giles, Augusta County, VA. Bucks County, PA. New Amsterdam/New York.
