Virginia was not only the largest and most populous of the American colonies, but its population was also highly migratory within Virginia’s borders and beyond. Little wonder then that so many family historians need to research Virginian ancestors. In this webinar, Senior Genealogist Kyle Hurst shares her go-to Virginia-based resources within five categories: genealogies, journals, land, taxation, and history. Learn about essential published sources that discuss family groups and help us to trace Virginian ancestors through time and place. NOTE: West Virginia (up until its separation from Virginia in 1863) will be included in this presentation.
This syllabus is intended to accompany our online lecture Virginia Genealogy: Go-To Published Resources (archived recording as of 3/24: https://americanancestors.org/video-library). It includes a reference for all resources mentioned in the session, plus many others.
