Explore the methods and resources for researching Virginia genealogy prior to ca. 1850. Library of Virginia reference archivist Cara Griggs presents ways that information can be found despite record loss and records that lack detail. This workshop includes an overview of colonial government, focusing on a variety of record types that will help to place an individual in a particular time and location and to potentially link generations together (provided that records survive). These include census records, tax records, and the records of religious organizations. For more information, contact Ashley Ramey at email@example.com or 804.692.3001.
