Of the many ways to trace your lineage one is a public record and very easy to obtain. The one of which I speak is the Registration of Voters. It gives the individuals name, their age, precinct inwhich they live, sex, and age. If the individual was not born in the US and the date and place of Naturaliztion. It also gives you a sense of the individual's polictical leanings from their party affiliation.
The following registration lists indivilduals in Precinct 8 of Clay District of Harrison County, West Virginia. This precinct covered the area of Big Bingamon Creek in Harrison County. The registration was completed on June 10, 1922 and is signed by:
J. N. Stiles and C. L. Pigott.
