The Allegheny Regional Family History Society

The ALLEGHENY REGIONAL FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting interest in and preservation of family history and genealogy throughout the Allegheny Mountain Region. While no physical boundaries have been set for the Allegheny Region, it might best be defined as those counties in northeast West Virginia, southwest Pennsylvania, western Maryland and northwest Virginia; and may include any area that received a settlement of people from that area in the last two centuries.

AN EXCELLENT GROUP FOR NON-RESIDENTS

The ALLEGHENY REGIONAL FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY is organized in such a way that persons living outside, but with research interest within the Allegheny Region, can benefit from membership in the organization. All members can advertise their wants, needs and problems FREE in the ALLEGHENY REGIONAL ANCESTORS. Each new member is requested to submit a five generation ancestor chart or surname list. Surnames on the charts and lists along with the corresponding addresses of members are published periodically in the quarterly journal. Thus, persons not living within the Allegheny Region, or who are unable to attend meetings can communicate with those with a like or similar interest.

MEETINGS

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the library, located in the I.O.O.F. Lodge Building, US Rt. 219 & 250, about 3 miles South of Elkins, across from the Elkins Regional Convalescent Center.

ALLEGHENY REGIONAL ANCESTORS QUARTERLY JOURNAL

The ALLEGHENY REGIONAL FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY publishes a quarterly journal, ALLEGHENY REGIONAL ANCESTORS. In addition to the queries and surname lists mentioned, the journal also contains a news section that reports various items of interest to family historians. Also carried are numerous feature articles and records of a genealogical and historical interest from within the Allegheny Region..
