VA vs WVA

Posted: 5 Mar 2012 8:23PM GMT
Classification: Query
If you are citing where someone lived, but they were born in Ohio county in Virginia (pre 1861) do you leave it as VA or change it to WVA to match today's states? I have the same issue with New Amsterdam vs New York. Which is the appropriate way to do this in the genealogical world?

Thanks.

Lou
