Take a walk on the other side of the bridge and Join the Pioneer Families Community to enjoy more genealogy records and resources. Most families traveled rather extensively in the old days, searching for land. For this reason, the bounty grants and land lotteries opened up new opportunities for land. Because of tobacco crops, by the early 1800s, the soil in Virginia was depleted of its nutrients and families grew in size. The custom was that the first-born son inherited the family plantation. Other brothers had to move on and make their own way. An examination of deed records reveals that friends and relatives moved in droves to these new opportunities. As families crossed into other States, it then becomes necessary to examine the county records at every stop which they made. This community strives to upload as many county records as possible on a weekly basis. That means wills, estates, inventories, appraisements, guardianships, deeds, marriages, as well as bible records, cemeteries, pensions, obituaries and traces genealogies.
