For Virginia Researchers

Because of the close proximity of the Library of Virginia and Virginia Historical Society, VGS does not maintain a library, research facility, or surname material and does not employ research staff. The link below is a list in PDF format of Virginia-based researchers. Hard copy is available upon receipt of a SASE business envelope. 

Note: Inclusion in this list carries no endorsement by VGS nor is VGS accountable for inadvertent misrepresentations contained therein.

Dear Senator:

 

I urge you to support SB 600 of Senator John Cosgrove, now before the Senate Courts of Justice Committee.  This bill will cure an unintended consequence of prior legislation that has denied researchers access to Virginia historical public records going back to the 1700’s.

 

The Library of Virginia has had to withdraw 222 reels of microfilm from research access.  Local clerks have been compelled to deny researchers access to county order books and indices covering the 1800’s. 

 

Please cure this barrier to genealogical and historical research in Virginia by passing SB 600.

Sincerely,

 

[your name and address]
