September 2011:
  • Added several photos and status update to the Long Hollow Baptist Church page in Jackson Co., WV, thanks to photos that long time volunteers, Charlotte and Steve Iman sent us this past year. They also took photos of the church cemetery, and we'll be adding a page for those in the not too distant future.
  •  Thank you for your patience as we continue to catch up after our sabbatical in 2010!

June 2011:
  • We're back! Our building project is complete, and we're settling into our new home in Mason Co., WV. We'll be gradually picking up on activity on this web site as the summer progresses. While we've been on sabbatical, we've received many, many emails and new photos of cemeteries and markers from volunteers across the country. If we haven't replied to your email as yet, please be patient with you as we catch up from past months.
  • Added links to three cemetery pages to the Mineral County Cemetery page, graciously provided by Abe family researcher, Michael Abe.

December 2010 - March 2011:
  • Here's wishing you and yours a Happy New Year! We're on sabbatical until early 2011, as we take care of some personal matters and finish establishing our permanent residence in West Virginia. We're still receiving email, but are only replying when we're able. Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you here sometime the first quarter of 2011!
  • Updates have recently been made to the "Who Are We?" page

October 2010:
  • A reminder of how you can help us get the word out about preserving our historic cemeteries: add the WVCPA GoodSearch toolbar to your web browser. Once you add the WVCPA toolbar to Internet Explorer or Firefox, each time you shop at one of the more than 1,300 participating stores, a percentage of what you spend will be donated to us at no extra cost to you! You could even save money as the toolbar provides coupons and deals. The toolbar also has a search box and each time you search the Internet, about a penny is donated to us. No registration is required! http://www.goodsearch.com/toolbar/wvcpa-west-virginia-cemetery-preservation-association

September & October 2010:
  • We are in the process of moving our office from Colorado to West Virginia, and will only be able to reply to a few email inquiries in the months of September and October while we make the move. We will be checking email during much of the time, however, so while we will likely not reply (at least not for several weeks), we will appreciate your greetings and words of encouragement. See you in a few weeks from West Virginia!

July 11, 2010:
  • Added a page for the Duff Cemetery in Jackson County, thanks to the photos and information provided by WVCPA contributor Paula Copen.
  • Added a page for the Major Duff Cemetery in Jackson County, thanks to the photos and information provided by WVCPA contributors Paula Copen and Charlotte and Steve Iman.
     
  • We send our thanks to all who have been praying for our Navy sailor son, currently in the Naval Hospital in San Diego - he is improving, slowly but surely, and it is hoped that he will be able to be discharged to the rehabilitation hospital sometime this month. This event, in addition to other family-related priorities, have taken us temporarily away from the cemetery documentation work. These will continue to be a distraction for us for the next few months, and we thank you for your patience with our limited email replies and updates to this website.

Mar. 20, 2010:
  • Added a page for the Armentrout Cemetery in Webster County, thanks to the work of Michael Henline.
  • Added a page for the Casto-Hutton Cemetery in Jackson County, thanks to the photography of our faithful volunteer Charlotte Iman, with the assistance of her husband Steve. More to come from them, as we get the pages built!

Mar. 6, 2010:
Feb. 15, 2010:
  • Added a page for the Nichel (Nicholl) Cemetery in Mason County, thanks to research by both WVCPA and Nicholl family researcher and descendant, Dawn Wood. Also added an old photo of the original Pine Grove Church of Cologne District in Mason County on the bottom of the Pine Grove Cemetery page, thanks to Dawn's sharing it with us.
  • Our computer system has been down over the weekend - a nasty attack from a recent 'update' from Microsoft (don't you just *love* Vista some days?!). After several hours of work in restoring the system from a prior mirror and off-system file backups, we're back up and running. So much for a long three-day weekend of catching up on the 'to-do' list! Such is the life of a humble non-profit organization that wears all it's own hats...

Jan. 18, 2010:
  • Added a page for the Old Glenville Cemetery on the Glenville State College campus in Gilmer County, thanks to the information and photos provided by WVCPA volunteers Alice and Karl Click.

Jan. 1, 2010:
  • Added a page for the Boggess Cemetery at Goldtown in Jackson County (sometimes referred to as the Hutson Boggess Cemetery), thanks to the information and photos provided by WVCPA volunteers Charlotte and Steve Iman.

Dec. 30, 2009:
  • If the WVCPA web site is of value to you, and if you have never made a contribution or have not done so in a long time, we ask for your help, however modest, in supporting the site's existence. Readership has expanded dramatically, with nearly 3,000 visits, over 9,000 page views, and over 2,000 individual readers in November 2009 alone. Donations will be deeply appreciated.
     
  • Remember, too, as we enter 2010 to continue make use of the GoodSearch search engine at www.goodsearch.com, specifying "WVCPA" as your designated charity.  GoodSearch is a search engine with a unique social mission. Itís powered by Yahoo, so you get the same great search results. GoodSearch donates 50% of their advertising revenue to the nonprofits and schools selected by their users. This past week, WVCPA received a check for $77.59 from GoodSearch as a direct result of your use of the search engine in 2009! Now you, our supporters, can make a difference in the work of WVCPA, or any nonprofit charity of their choice that is included among the registered organizations on the GoodSearch site, simply by changing the way they search the Internet!  Anytime anyone uses the GoodSearch site to search on the Internet and specifies WVCPA as their favorite charity, GoodSearch will set aside a portion of their revenue to contribute WVCPA (an average of $.013 per search the past two years). Over the years, many of you have expressed the desire to donate to WVCPA, but have not had the means - now you can without it costing you a penny!  Check out GoodSearch for details, and tell your friends and family so they can help contribute as well!
     
  • Happy New Year! As the old year comes to a close, and the New Year opens up before us, Joel and I want to wish WVCPA's faithful viewers, and especially our dedicated volunteers and contributors from across the country, a very Blessed New Year. We look forward to continue working with you in 2010 to rescue the precious old burial grounds of West Virginia. Thank you for your loyalty to us and to the mission of the West Virginia Cemetery Preservation Association!

    Joel & Donna Duprey

  • Follow us now on  facebook  - if you have a facebook account (they're free, by the way), you can follow our activities on this popular social-networking site. We're taking a tentative leap into this 'modern technology', to explore the possibilities of how we can provide a more interactive forum for our regular viewers to interact both with us here at WVCPA, but also with one another through Discussions on our facebook site. Visit us on facebook today and become a fan!
