This web site has a searchable genealogy database showing the known ancestors and descendants of over 110,000 individuals related by bloodlines or marriage. Dave Distler began researching and compiling his family history in March of 1995 and it resulted in a self-published book in November of that year titled "Ohio River Valley Families". Although his research started with only about 4,300 individuals, mostly settlers of the Ohio River Valley region of the United States in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky and Indiana, the current database has family information from nearly every region of the United States plus a significant amount from the United Kingdom and Germany.

Some notables included in the ORVF Genealogy Database are Louis Capet (King Louis VII of France), Myra MayBelle Shirley (Belle Starr), Daniel Boone, Stephen Hopkins (of the Mayflower), John Crandall (The Elder), Dwight David Eisenhower, Ulysses Simpson Grant, Virginia Katherine McMath (Ginger Rogers), Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George Herbert Walker Bush, George Walker Bush and Richard Milhous Nixon.
