Families of Floyd County, Virginia
This project is built upon the 1850 Floyd Co., VA census which I originally transcribed about 1993. Since that time, I've added to it as more information became available. It was my way of organizing the material I was gathering, and it has kind of developed a life of its own.… always changing & growing. You’ll see different families have different formats and different stages of “doneness”. My research leads me in different directions and I may not get back to the starting point … ever.
I need to thank so many people who have made contributions over the years but this isn't an academy award speech so I'll just say it couldn't have been done without ALL of your help: our 1st "study group"; the original FCVA Newslist; anyone who has knowingly & unknowingly added info on their own families by way of postings, homepages, queries or direct contact. THANK YOU ALL!
I want to add one more thing. Someone dear to me recently said I could use information from a project she had recently spent weeks on. Her words were, ".. whatever I wanted…however I wanted…it's all public domain anyway…". That's exactly how I feel about this study. If you find anything of use to you, please feel free to use it for your personal use. I just don’t want to ever see it published for profit.
