Marion Woodfork Simmons
I am a family/community historian who has been researching my family history for over 20 years. In addition to preserving my family history, I strive to preserve the history of the communities in which my ancestors lived. I initiated the Union High History Project to preserve the history of Caroline County’s only high school for Negroes during the era of segregation. The end result of the project is a self-published book titled Memories of Union High: An Oasis in Caroline County, Virginia 1903-1969,
I was one of several interviewers for the Fort AP Oral History Project which sought to preserve the history of the communities that existed in the area that became the Fort AP Hill Military Reservation. The final product of the project was a book titled Wealthy in Heart: Oral History of Life Before A.P. Hill.
I am the owner of Woodfork Genealogy LLC a research consulting company whose mission is to empower ordinary people to preserve family and community history.
