Migrations Into Russell County | Migrations From Russell County

This is the Russell County, Virginia Migrations project. The purpose of this project is to catalog migrations into and out of Russell County. If you have ancestors who lived in Russell County and know the date (approximates are ok) that they either migrated into or from Russell County and the location that they migrated to or from, e-mail Michael Dye so that they may be added to these pages.

It should be noted that Russell County was formed from Washington County in 1786 and that any migrations into the area before that date would have actually been into Washington County or one of it's mother counties. Also, Several other counties were formed from portions of Russell County, Lee County in 1793, Tazewell in 1799, Scott in 1815, Wise in 1855 and Buchanan in 1858. So migrations from Russell County that occur about the date of a county formation were probably not actual migrations, but rather cases of persons being affected by county border changes.

The USGenWeb Project makes no claims of the validity of the information contained on these pages and reminds you that each new piece of information should be researched and proved or disproved through your own documentation.
