A list of the most notable first families of Virginia, plus three pages listing the best genealogical Virgnia resources, round out the book.

For genealogists who have a brickwall along the Missouri River in the 1840s, or are stuck in southern Indiana in the 1820s, or in Kentucky in the 1790s? Consider looking to Virginia. This book shows that most states prior to the Civil War have strong Virginia ties with Virginia families accounting for a high percentage of the settlement into all of the states west of the Allegheny Mountains to the Mississippi River, and south and southwest of Virginia into the gulf states. It shows migration patterns into, within and out of Virginia. Included are the geography of the eastern half of North America, chronology of the first 100 years of Virginia settlement, reasons why people migrated, map of migration routes, chronology of migration out of Virginia, census statistics, chronologies of the early settlement of the various midwestern and southern states. The last page is a quick reference guide of resources to begin Virginia research.
