Sharing some stories…Goens/Goins/Goings/Gowins, …Jefferson County, VA & WV

I was asked a few questions about my Goens/Goins/Goings/Gowins ancestors. Whew! They are like researching the surname Johnson or Smith in the USA. Jim Surkamp has an excellent website that will educate you on the county of Jefferson County, West Virginia, formally Virginia. Tune in and hear me sharing some stories on my Goens/Goins/Goings/Gowins ancestors. There will be more to come! Tune in.  http://civilwarscholars.com/2014/02/family-historian-shelley-murphy-on-the-goins-family/
