This project is a table of contents for all projects relating to Spotsylvania County Virginia. See the Related Projects for details.


Patrick Sullivan has written a fantastic series of blogs about various of the Ancient Ancestors in the Spotsylvania county and surrounding area. He began with the Row family, but has expanded to many of the collateral families kin by blood or marriage as well. His blogs now include biographical sketches of people throughout the state of Virginia and beyond.

His detailed and interesting blogs at Spotsylvania 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.

Patrick Sullivan has a new book out (proceeds are going to fund the Orange County Historical Society so I will shamelessly plug it): No Matter What Befalls Me
