The Fred Lambert Collection consists primarily of notebooks containing information on families and local history of Cabell and Wayne Counties, West Virginia. Included are cemetery readings, copies of deeds, wills, indentures, newspaper articles, research notes and notes of interviews conducted by Mr. Lambert of Cabell County residents. Material on Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Kanawha, and Boone Counties is also included.
The index is by no means comprehensive; it is primarily a guide to family names where there is a significant amount of information.
The notebooks were arranged and described by Kim Wilson; the index was prepared by Cora P. Teel and Linda Nance. The word-processed document was typed by Crystal Rice in 1995.
Special collections material is obtained from many sources and is intended primarily for research and educational purposes. Certain works may be protected by copyright, trademark, or related interests not governed by the department. It is up to the researcher to verify that they have permission to use these materials for publication or other activities.
