The Ancestors in Search of Fertile Soil #genealogy

The Ancestors in Search of Fertile Soil

wagon trainWhen Virginia Pioneers merged with Georgia Pioneers (8 Genealogy Websites), a huge collection of old wills and estates (images) were included from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. It is important to research these southeastern states as people moved around quite a bit. Tobacco lands in Virginia were worn out long before the Revolutionary War; and this is one reason that so many veterans of the wars moved away from the family seat in Virginia and took up land grants. After the Native Indian population was driven to the Far West, settlers from the emigrant populations in New England and the Southern States took up the challenge of locating fertile soils. Virginians typically moved into the Carolina's and Georgia, and ultimately crossed into Alabama. There never was a time in history when people were not on the move. Genealogists have to research all of the probably resources, eliminating and adding as they go.
