Virginia Roots: Finding Your Family in the Old Dominion
Program presented by Sam Williams
For many Americans with deep roots in this country, the genealogical trail eventually leads to Virginia. Migrations our of Virginia took our ancestors west and south across the United States. For others, Virginia has always been home- a state with a diversity of stories and the paradox of being home to Founding Fathers while also the leader of the domestic slave trade. This session will introduce Virginia geography relevant to researchers (counties, independent cities and their historical development), available records in Virginia, and examples of how Virginia families can benefit from genetic genealogy. Attendees will learn how to access Virginia records in person and online.
