 Virginia history and genealogy

Our initial offering of Virginia material:

We offer a free download (35 pages, in PDF form) of the prefaces, the table of contents, the introduction, and the index of this book of 545 pages.  We also offer the book itself, in sections (see below).  Using the index in this free download, as well as the table of contents, you will be able to select the section (or sections) you wish to purchase.  We also recommend the historical background material of the Scotch-Irish in the Introduction (included in this free download) to all interested in this county (which once included the entire western section of Virginia, as well as what became West Virginia and Kentucky).

Also available:

We have a download available in our Connecticut collection that is less than flattering with regard to the ethics of Virginia land developers in the years following the American Revolution.  Please see our Connecticut page for more information about this article.

We are always looking for more Virginia material for this section!

For a non-Virginian, one of the biggest stumbling blocks in genealogical research concerns the subdivision of counties.  From a handful of very large counties (Augusta County epitomizes this) to dozens of far smaller counties, telling where an ancestor might have lived at any point in time can be challenging at best.  We located an animated map of foundation of the counties of Virginia that we're pleased to pass along to you.  Here's the link:  http://www.vagenealogy101.com/maps/  Please note it is NOT a page under control of Between the Lakes Group (although we wouldn't mind being able to claim it as our own).  It's incredibly useful!
