The Hager Family Website is site is a place for us to meet and share information about our daily lives as well our shared family history and genealogy.If you would like an invitation to participate, please contact me or leave a message posted here with your e-mail address.
The greatest feature is the uploading and converting GEDCOM files for use with the Online Family Tree feature.The Online Family Tree has been designed to let you create a family tree from scratch or to work on an existing family tree file.
Once your GEDCOM files are uploaded or converted, you will be able to view and edit your family tree online as well as give permissions to others to edit it as well.The information you add to your family can be downloaded as a GEDCOM file, which allows you to work on your family tree using other genealogy software products.I have uploaded my GEDCOM file with about 95,000 related individuals.I continue to make changes as folks provide information, which validates a different family connection.My GEDCOM includes mostly the Hager, Cook, Bias, Perry, Toney, Adkins, Browning, Turner(Amherst County, VA), Mangus surnames but it has many other related surnames such as Walker, Buchanan, Workman, Barker, Epling, Spurlock, Lovejoy, Stollings, Elkins, Vance, Cooper, Yeager, Vannatter, Harless, Canterbury, Miller, Brown, Bailey, Toler, Hatfield, Fowler, Lowe and many others from the Southwestern part of what used to be Virginia and now is Southern West Virginia.The primary counties are Boone, Lincoln, Cabell, Logan, Wyoming, Raleigh, Mercer, Wayne, Putnam and Kanawha Counties of West Virginia as well as Giles, Tazewell and Amherst County, Virginia.Parts of Tazewell County, Virginia formed Giles County, VA (1806); Logan County, WV (1824); Mercer County, WV (1837); McDowell County, WV (1858).
MyFamily.com has opened many doors that our family and friends can share in the comfort of your living room, office or den.We can share photos, news articles, births, deaths, marriages and all the pertinent data that comes with genealogy research.All of the information is transferred into a genealogy program that will be reproduced into a family book, for our children and grandchildren.This Web site is a GIANT step forward for Internet communicators.
I have also been loading many reports and other documents to the file cabinet.You can view a description of each file by clicking on the title.You can also download the file if you find it of interest or just view it from the site by clicking on the title again.I am loading Census Records and other documents that I have obtained an electronic copy of.Here is an extract from the Phillip Hager, Jr. Descendants Report:
