delia_newLocated in the historic town of Charlottesville, Virginia, C’ville Genie is owned by Delia Wilson Lunsford, a Georgia native.

She is a descendant of a Maine set of Wilsons that arrived here in 1719 and it was this tree that sparked her interest in genealogy originally.  Delia holds a bachelor’s in English and is an accomplished writer and business woman. She moved to Charlottesville before she ever thought about genealogy but is now just tickled to be living in the midst of so much history – the nation’s, the south’s and her own as three of her family lines originate here in Virginia.

Even though she lives in central Virginia, Delia is solidly grounded in New England history and genealogy. She has written a book about the Wilsons of Maine, The Uncommonly Common, available for ordering on this website as well as at, Barnes & Noble and most local bookstores. She also has a fiction book based on one of those descendants in the planning stages and is researching her next family for another genealogy book.
