The Wheeling Family Volume 2

In The Wheeling Family: A Celebration of Immigrants and Their Neighborhoods, we attempted to record a representative sample of those stories from those who still remembered. But thirty-five family histories and nearly six hundred photographs proved insufficient to fully capture Wheeling's fascinating diversity. This second volume is an attempt to complete the mosaic. In addition to the overflow of immigrant stories from volume one, the reader will find stories of African American families who migrated to the region in search of freedom and opportunity, as well as more contemporary immigrants stories from Asia. Finally, the research was expanded to include stories from neighboring Upper Ohio Valley river towns whose residents and cultures have always been inextricably linked to Wheeling's. These stories, recorded as the region's human tide ebbs, are the testimonies of the last witnesses to a bygone era. We hope you enjoy experiencing them.

Over 300 pages with numerous stunning images and LOTS of information!
