Shenandoah Valley Pioneers and Descendants

Many folks in America are fortunate in that they have traced their ancestry to theShenandoah Valley Pioneers and Descendants Shenandoah valley of Virginia.

Fourteen years ago, I found four of my ancestral lines that traced to the early Shenandoah. 

My ancestors there were all from Scotland.  As immigrants are wont to do, groups of the same nationality gathered together in the same area among folks whose language and life experience reference points were similar to their own..

Of course, since those early days, modern America has enjoyed books and television programs that celebrate both the people and the Shenandoah valley.

Thanks to Google Books, we can read Thomas Kemp Cartmell’s “Shenandoah valley pioneers and their descendants” book online.
