I'm trying to find the proper syle for Virginia but don't see, off hand, where it's listed.  While I'm at it, what's the name for New Jersey?

for Place Names of areas now USA & Canada, see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:North_American_Place_Names - from https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/613838/north-american-place-names-updated

For Virginia specifically, see also https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Virginia%20Place%20Names (but the short answer is 1768 would be Colony of Virginia - 4 July 1776 and after would be Virginia, USA)

Thank you.  BTW, where do I find the information documented?

I just looked at the wikipedia articles on Virginia and New Jersey. I am not aware of any official wikitree list.

There is a spread sheet that a group of people have been working on for all the U.S. States names by date. I tried to find it in G2G but couldn't locate it. Maybe some one else can find it.
Try looking under [[Category:Virginia]].  The first line shows the link to Preceded by [[Category:Virginia Colony]].
