On 24 October 1861, citizens of 39 counties of Virginia voted to form the Unionist State of West Virginia after the State of Virginia seceded from the United States during the Civil War. On 31 December 1862, President Abraham Lincoln gave his approval to recognizing the new state. The citizens of by then 50 counties of West Virginia ratified statehood on 26 March 1863 and on 20 June 1863, West Virginia officially became part of the Union. Those researching their roots or history in West Virginia should also consider research in Virginia archives and libraries for events and persons originating prior to the split of the states.
