About Roane County WVGenWeb
Roane County WVGenWeb is dedicated to making genealogical reference materials pertaining to the Roane County, West Virginia area freely and openly available on the Internet. Our intent is to be consistent with the goals and policies established by our parent organizations the WVGenWeb Project and the USGenWeb Project.
All who benefit from Roane County WVGenweb owe a huge debt of gratitude to Ted and Pat Barnes for the labor of love they put into the original Roane County Genealogy Project. From their hands, the coordination of the project passed to Nathan Zipfel.
When Nathan stepped down as county coordinator in 2008, Rick Greathouse, as a representative of the Roane County Historical Society, assumed the roll of county coordinator, with the hopes that a closer association between Roane County WVGenWeb and Roane County Historical Society will be mutually beneficial in attaining those goals which both share, and in turn will be of benefit to you, the Roane County Researcher.
