Surname/tag: St.Clair Database
My primary research is St.Clair's from Va-WVa and surrounding states. I have started an excel spreadsheet list of St.Clair marriage records, birth records and death records culled from the WVA vital statistics site with links back to the document, a few St.Clair census records from Ancestry with links back to the record, burial info from Find A Grave with links to the appropriate Find A Grave page plus selected St.Clairs from Wiki with links back to the owners info. They are color coded so one can distinguish ine type of record to the other.
The goal of this project is to facilitate researching St.Clair's by bringing various information sources together. The spreadsheet gives you the ability to sort by name so you can compare like names allowing you to match people together. It can also be sorted in multiple ways. Birth Date, County and state born, fathers name, mothers name, who they were married to , date married, location married, where they died, when they died.
Although I'm focusing on St.Clair's in and around Va and WVa, I'd like to eventually move to surrounding states.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am St.Clair-837, William St.Clair.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll am working on them, and could use help.
I need help from people who are on Ancestry who can collect St.Clair names from "Census" records and transfer them to a spreadsheet with links. Coordination of efforts required, for example I have the St.Clairs from the 1850 Bedford Co Va Census, St.Clair's from the 1850 & 1870 Mercer County Va (now WVa) Census.
I need people who can go on "Find A Grave" and collect info on St.Clair burials and transfer them to a spreadsheet with links. Again coordination of efforts is needed.
Does anyone have books on St.Clair Births, Marriages or Deaths that could be transferred to the spreadsheet.
Currently there is over 1450 records on the spreadsheet which I'm willing to share.
