Updated July 20,
The history of Peter LeValley of Warwick RI and all of
is being prepared for publication--probably in 2020.
50 years of research add up to two volumes of about 600
There will be black & white pictures where possible,
plus an 8-page color section.
The 2-volume set will cost around $100.
No money needs to change hands now, but we do need an
idea of how many books to print.
So if you or other family members are interested, notify
These books will make lasting gifts.
This information has been posted on RootsWeb for
many years. But they have taken all of their family sites down
for repairs lasting several months. Space on this personal web
site is limited, so only part of that information is temporarily
stored here. If you encounter a link that doesn't work, it leads
to a page that is not here. You will have to wait until the
RootsWeb restoration for those pages.
This site is to help people looking for your
LeValley ancestors. The LaValley spelling is not included (except
for a couple of branches in New York and Oklahoma who didn't know how
to spell their own names). LaValley families tend to be of
French-Canadian Catholic origin; they have their own list at
RootsWeb. LeValley seems to be a Channel Islands spelling, and
their history is mostly protestant. If you are still with us,
follow these four steps:
1. Determine which
LeValley family you belong to.
2. Whether or not you have found your answer
by now, please take the time to look through three lists of mystery
LeValleys, and let us know if you can identify even one of these people:
LeValleys from old telephone books
LeValleys from census records
LeValleys from miscellaneous sources
3. To communicate with other researchers, join
the LeValley mailing list at RootsWeb: LEVALLEY-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Write the single word subscribe
on the subject line, and again in the body. Unless we are making
some exciting discovery, list traffic is usually light.
4. Send us a letter of introduction,
explaining who you are, where you may fit in, and what you are looking
for. Here is mine.
