This week’s blogging prompt is the State of West Virginia. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to West Virginia. If you don’t have any connections to West Virginia, find a West Virginia resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 9/1/2013 – 9/7/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
My only family connection to West Virginia is a rather remote connection. My 10th great grand uncle Samuel Potter was married to Anna Russell in West Virginia. Samuel’s parents were John Potter and Elizabeth Wood.
