The history of Peter LeValley of Warwick RI and all of his 1758 male-line descendants
has now been published.
50 years of research add up to two volumes of 688 pages each.
There are nearly 800 black & white pictures, plus an 8-page color section.
The 2-volume set costs $125 (which includes shipping).
100 copies were printed and about 70 are gone already.
So if you or other family members are interested, notify the author:

    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:
    a.  Mystery LeValleys from old telephone books
    b.  Mystery LeValleys from census records
    c.  Mystery 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.
