Over the Holidays I've been honoring my own ancestors by going back to my American roots: The Kanawha Valley of Virginia and Pennsylvania. That area has changed even though my ancestors never really moved that much. It's difficult sometimes to keep up with boundary changes even if the ancestors are still in the same place. It was Kanawha County, Bath County, Augusta County, Rockbridge County, Orange County, Mason County, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky. . . you name it! But, we weren't nearly as adventurous as the continuous boundary changes make us seem. So, that's where I've been through the holidays. . . trying to make geographic sense of my U.S. Roots.
Right now I'm working on Borden Tract, Augusta, Colonial Virginia. But, anyone else who wants to help with separating out the area is welcome to join in the fun. I could use some help with Cowpasture: https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Settlers_of_the_Cowpasture_in_Augusta_County%2C_Virginia
, and Calfpasture: https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Settlers_of_the_Calfpasture_in_Augusta_County%2C_Virginia
You can categorize them in Augusta County, Virginia Colony. Or. . . take on an area of your choice where you find the same difficulty. . . your ancestors don't move but the place names keep changing on you. Isolate specific areas so it's easier for other researchers to find their ancestors within those localities.
Because, real genealogists understand what's important. . . location, location, location!
