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.
