Description

Established in 1869 in the small town of Jeffersonville (now Tazewell) in southwest Virginia, the News ably reflected the community's economic and social fabric. Tazewell, located between the Appalachian and Allegheny Mountains, was surrounded by small farms primarily devoted to cattle and grain and the center of increasingly vibrant lumber and coal mining industries. Despite its small size, Tazewell had a remarkable variety of businesses, churches, and large homes.[1]

Other Genealogies


Local News Columns

Clinch Valley News printed news from letters from communities around the area. Typical items include: relatives' visits, sickness, injuries, individuals in town for business, and social gatherings. These columns give a lot of "flavor" and might yield good details for narrative biographies. If you can trace a relative to one of these locales in 1899-1922, it may be worth perusing the columns to see if you can spot them.

Indexing Process

This resource is intended as an index, not an abstract or secondary source. It is built on the assumption that web users browsing this index will click through to look at the source, and that WikiTree and family historians would be best served by extraction of the data from this original source onto individual profiles instead of being comprehensively compiled here.

To promote collaboration on this index and on similar resources in WikiTree spaces, here is a statement of goals of this project:

  1. Generate accurate, human-readable and machine-readable rendering of original text
  2. Highlight information to help web users find their genealogical connections in this source
  3. Support future improvements of this resource (it may never be "finished", though it might one day be substantially complete) by encouraging volunteers interested in this data to collaborate on this index
  4. Innovate the use of wiki-style connections between information, research, and data

My current protocol is:

  1. Retrieve an issue of CVN at VirginiaChronicle.com
  2. Generate a stable direct link to each page and column with genealogical data
  3. Index each notable item of genealogical data from CVN here and link to the relevant page image.[2]
  4. Preview and proofread for accuracy and formatting errors.
  5. Save Changes.

In an initial pass through the material a somewhat random sample of issues were indexed over the life of the available archive. Early issues include a large proportion of general-interest news and culture materials. Most issues 1894 or later appear to have at least one item of interest to WikiTree genealogists. At some point during the 19-aughts, CVN shifted to devoting significantly more page space to local happenings, including marriages and deaths. Volunteer indexers are encouraged to start with later issues because of their higher density of relevant data.

  2. When a WikiTree profiles matching the genealogical data can be located, please create a linked citation directly from the profile to CVN, in lieu of indexing it here.
