     Larry Shuck. 1988, viii, 457 pages, 3 maps. When Greenbrier County was
     established in 1778, it contained within its initial borders land that
     eventually would form another eleven counties in what later became the
     state of West Virginia. Sooner or later, any serious search in the
     southern West Virginia area leads back to Greenbrier County records. A
     most thorough index is provided in the current work, and it includes
     more than eight thousand unique entries for a total of about
     twenty-five thousand total references. [Grn1] $22.00

     GREENBRIER COUNTY RECORDS, Volume 2: Personal property tax lists:
     1782/83, 1786/88, 1792, 1796, 1799, 1805, 1815 transcribed by Larry
     Shuck 1989, ix, 302 p. The author continues with the compiling of
     Greenbrier's early records by the transcribing of selected personal
     property tax lists for this county until the time when surviving
     censuses are available to continue the search for ancestors. In the
     years when a date of visitation is included (1792, 1796, & 1799) two
     lists are available: one is presented in its entirety in alphabetic
     order, the second in abbreviated fashion by date of visitation. In
     this way the researcher can provide helpful clues as to who an
     ancestor's neighbors were. [Grn2] $22.00

     xii, 997 pages. This volume is a thorough and comprehensive listing
     and abstracting of data from the marriage records of this most
     important early West Virginia county. Up to 1863, the marriages are
     part of Virginia's records, and after that date they fall within the
     purview of West Virginia public record. A full and complete index of
     all names is provided in volume 3 of the set; volume one includes a
     surname frequency and the complete abstracts sorted alphabetical by
     husband's name; volume 2 uses the bride's maiden name as the sort key.
     In this way, many family relationships can easily be seen which would
     not be visible while scattered throughout the data. This is a most
     important work for this early county's records. [Grn4] {3v.set} $49.95

     Fayette County [West] Virginia

     transcribed by Larry G. Shuck. 1991, iv, 127 pages, index. Fayette
     County was created in 1831 from portions of Logan, Greenbrier,
     Nicholas and Kanawha counties. In 1833 Fayette gave a small parcel of
     territory back to Greenbrier County, and in 1839 another small parcel
     was returned to Kanawha County. Raleigh County was formed in 1850 from
     the southern part of Fayette, and also in that year a slight
     adjustment was made in the boundary line between Fayette and Kanawha
     counties, with territory accruing to Fayette. The current booklet is
     an accurate and thorough transcription of the first census for Fayette
     County, West Virginia, in which all members of each household were
     listed individually by name. This volume contains over one thousand
     unique surname entries. A valuable source for genealogists. A complete
     index is provided. [Fy50] $12.95

     transcribed by Larry G. Shuck. 1991, iv, 224 pages, index. The author

     state due to a poor hand and pencilled entries. A complete index is
     provided. [Fy70] $17.95
