I've been using the notes field in the places sidebar for some of this information.

And it would be fantastic if we could link up media items here - pictures of olde farms or houses or other places our family members lived and worked...

Default Re: State Names Change

if the document you are looking at (census, will, deed, etc.) says West Virginia, then you cite it as West Virginia. If it says Virginia, then cite it as Virginia. Best practice is to use existing place name at the time document was created.
