Virginia was a large state covering to the Mississippi River early later shrinking down to it present size.  It also encompassed a portion of North Carolina very early. It was the early Fur Trade agreements that expanded Virginia to cover to the mighty Mississippi River (Northwest Territory).

As states developed and lands were re-marked for statehood the boundaries changed. 
West Virginia was taken from Virginia when the Civil War divided the peoples of the region. 
We will be talking a lot about early life, to time of the Civil War for records,  up through division of the state.
Come learn more about these to states sources and maps availability.
