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 https://groups.io/g/levalley.
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.
