S01 E10: Why Changing State and County Boundary Lines Matter in Genealogy Research

In this episode, we chat with our guest Loretta Bellamy about why changing state and county boundary lines matter in genealogy research.

Not knowing how the boundaries of colonial territories, states, and counties radically shifted over time can seriously trip you up when it comes to researching your ancestry.

As we’re writing this, we are thinking about one of our ancestors who seemed to bounce between two states and three counties. Not a bit of it. He occupied the same parcel of land for the entirety of his life. So what was up? Changing state and county lines.


We are available for your genealogy research project!

Whether you’re new to genealogy, don’t have the time to pursue your own research, or have a stubborn brick wall you just can’t break through: you can hire one of our experienced research team who will happily work with you to achieve your genealogy research goals. As the first Black-owned genealogy research company, our African American genealogists excel at African American genealogy! As African Americans with caucasian ancestors – our genealogists are just as experienced in researching European-descended American ancestry.

The short video below covers what we do and how we do it:
