This project is a table of contents for all projects relating to this County of Virginia. Please feel free to add profiles of anyone who was born, lived or died in this county.

Patrick Sullivan has written a fantastic series of blogs about various of the Ancient Ancestors in Rockbridge County and the surrounding area. His detailed and interesting blogs at Rockbridge Memory provide tremendous insight and information about numerous relatives and other local figures of interest. His well researched and thoughtfully written blogs provide day to day history about the ancestors as they lived it.

This table is a companion guide that cross references his research about a given ancestor with the profile of the individual over on the GENI genealogy site. Ideally, you can read the story about the person and see all the relatives as well. This provides extremely useful commentary that makes real the people, places and dates that typically go along with genealogy. If you are a relative, or even if you are just interested in local history, you can share in the experience of reliving some of these fascinating stories.
