Family Focus: Andrew McRobie

7

I’ve been doing so much research these past few weeks, I wasn’t even sure how to go about presenting it. First things first, I’ve found an awesome site that provides vital records for most West Virginian counties. Through this, I’ve managed to find birth registers, marriage registers, and death certificates (all scanned originals). The site is: http://www.wvculture.org.

1

So after a few weeks of a research lull, I was slammed with information this weekend and my obsession came back in full force. Thanks to a very distant cousin I was able to add a lot of Elisha Dewitt’s line to my tree. Previously I had only focused on John William and William (Jr.) as those are the two I’m directly related to. So now that I have more distant relatives than I know what to …
