Biographical Note

Bruce J. Anderson of Wytheville, Virginia published the Poindexter Descendants Association Newsletter in the 1980s. His family genealogy is extensively documented. His ancestors are descended from George Poingdestre, an immigrant to the Colony of Virginia in 1657 from the English Channel Isle of Jersey.

Scope and Content

Bruce J. Anderson completed extensive genealogy on his family, which is compiled in this collection. The collection contains correspondence, cards, newsletters, genealogical journals, various family genealogies, unpublished studies, lists of relatives and descendants, rubbings of tombstones, miscellaneous documents, histories, clippings, articles, excerpts from books, and a number of photographs. The bulk of the material was gathered during the 1980s. A few of the documents are photocopies of nineteenth century documents and other published studies of family histories. There is a website for the Poindexter Family Association at http://www.poindexterfamily.org, which documents the history of the American descendants of the Poingdestre Family of Jersey and Normandy. Some of the family names that appear among the materials include: Anderson, Poindexter, Puddister, Pendexter, Poingdestre, Brunner, Brown, Ohlund, Tucker, Crawford, Stray, Simmerly, Martin, Vest, Hartman, Wag, Thomas, George, Archibald and Alexander. Included among the genealogical materials are documents on the Huguenots in general and information about the claims of Cherokee related descendants against the United States government. Original order, as received, was maintained in processing and there are several roughly chronological sequences in the collection. However, the order of the materials is not strictly chronological. To maintain order, series are arranged by family name and provenance as they appeared when the collection was received by the Virginia Room.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged by family surnames and topical subdivisions. Original order of the collection was maintained.
