New River Notes

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

Churches of Alleghany, Ashe and Watauga Counties, North Carolina

This is a work in progress, an effort to identify all the churches that have existed over time in the Upper New River Valley. The status column shows status as of about 2000.

The format for this section is that churches are identified by county, then by general type, and name. You may use the column sort and search functions to find specific groupings. Each line has the name of the church, dates of operation, and affiliation by larger group.
