Virginia Genealogy


Virginia is known as the "Mother of Presidents", because it is the birthplace of eight U.S. presidents (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson), exceeded by no other state. Most of the United States' early presidents were from the state. Virginia has also been known as the "Mother of States" (sometimes "Mother States and Statesmen"), because portions of the original Colony subsequently became Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia as well as some portions of Ohio. Additionally, most of what is now Wisconsin and Michigan was also briefly claimed by Virginia during the Revolutionary War. (Wikipedia)

The Capital of Virgina is Richmond. It was admitted to statehood on June 25, 1788. Virginia, a southern state on the Atlantic Ocean, can be divided into five geographical regions; the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge, the Appalachian Ridge and Valley Region, and the Appalachian Plateau. Virginia is bordered by West Virginia and Maryland on the north and by North Carolina and Tennessee on the south. On the east, Virginia is bordered by Maryland and the Atlantic Ocean. On the west, Virginia is bordered by West Virginia and Kentucky.
