Welcome! My research began in 1996. With no surviving ancestors, I felt compelled to search for 'family'. Years before, I sat down with parents and grandparents and tried to put together a family tree. We were unable to go further back than my great grandparents. This was my beginning.
The Internet opened a whole new world in genealogical research. I started with my name, Ankrom, which is not very common. I easily found it located in the same area [Frederick Co. MD -> Greene Co. PA -> Tyler Co., WV] since the 1700s and before that: (Ancrum) Roxburghshire, Scotland. My database now has over 58,000 individuals, including over 10,000 Ankroms. As my skills became more refined, I branched out into other ancestral surnames.
I am grateful to other descendants who have forwarded photos of ancestors, gravesites, and documents. Please don't leave without checking out the photo gallery. Search
Only the names and dates of my ancestors (plus siblings) are listed. For further information, please contact me.
Some of my favorite West Virginia links!
Individuals on this website are my ancestors and their siblings -- no living individuals.
My database undergoes constant revisions, therefore I cannot keep up with all the changes on this site. I've included family history shared by other descendants in addition to LDS, court, censuses, and vital records.
Some information could contain errors since portions of my research comes from other descendants and researchers.
Any corrections, comments, or additions are always welcomed. mail
