Welcome to the West Virginia AHGP new home on the web. My name is Judy White and I will be taking care of this site until a new State Coordinator steps forward!! Things will stay pretty much the same as they were, except we will add new information, new county coordinators and needed repairs.

Genealogy Village is the new home for AHGP West Virginia, you can visit them at Genealogy Village. If you are in need of FREE space for a genealogy site, I am sure you will be welcomed.

Maybe you would like to know a little about AHGP, they have been around since 2000 and a couple years ago I started taking care of the website, we have kept all the requirements in place which are pretty easy to do.  Take a look at the About Page.  Besides the county pages they have Project and Topic sites, you may have a pet project of your own you would be interested in having others read, let us know we would be pleased to add you to the site.

If you are interested in hosting West Virginia or a West Virginia County,
