Description

This is a guide to the Louise Wright Bailey Genealogical Collection. The Louise Bailey Collection consists of 12 record storage boxes which include family group sheets, records, correspondence, news clippings, photographs, handwritten research notes, birth, marriage and death announcements and photocopies of publications related to Mrs. Bailey’s research. Some of the primary surnames included in the research are: Bailey, Boyer, Cook, Cornett, Farley, French, Romine, Straley, Thompson, Vaught and Wright, as well as many other connected surnames from the 1600s to the early 1900s. The majority of the collection focuses on Southwest Virginia, though other parts of Virginia, other states and some European connections are represented. Mrs. Bailey maintained excellent organization of her genealogical research materials, which was further maintained in the processing of this collection. It is also important to note that in many cases, source information was provided for this thorough genealogical collection.
It should also be mentioned that much of the correspondence included in the collection contains genealogical information, as Mrs. Bailey received research request from individuals all over the country. Records included in the collection are often handwritten transcriptions for official records, but in some cases may include photocopies of the records.
