Locating Documents of all Family Members

George Washington
It is important to read all of the wills, estates, deeds and other records of all the family members.  This process assists in assembling the genealogy with unexpected tidbits of information.  In the end, it all adds up to a better understanding of the life and times of our ancestors. There was a lot going in with record-keeping on the old plantations, as no one could maintain a farm without recording promissory notes extended to others or owed, cost of supplies and labor, planting of crops, etc.  All assets and debts of the deceased had to be listed in his estate as it was being administered.  Trace your Virginia Ancestors here
