Where to Find your Virginia Ancestors

Virginia Genealogy. The single-most important phase of finding your ancestors is to search for the Last Will and Testament in the county in which your relatives resided. Also, this is the quickest route of discovery for the names of children, parents, grandparents and other relatives, whether in America or abroad. We have digitized many old wills for the State of Virginia and placed them on this website for the benefit of the researcher. Virginia Pioneers
