About our Publications

The Virginia Genealogical Society publications program includes three major series:

  • Cavaliers and Pioneers: Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents: 1732-1776 (Vols. 4-8)
    Land patent records are an invaluable genealogical and historical resource for researchers of early Virginia. The Virginia Genealogical Society has issued five volumes taking the three volumes of Nell Marion Nugent's abstracts of Virginia land patents to 1776.
  • Index to Virginia Estates: 1800-1865 (10 Vols.)
    Index of all Virginia estate-related records found in will books and other collections, typically on microfilm. This ten-volume set has been completed geographically. Funding for this series has been made possible in part by a grant from the Richard Slatten Endowment for Virginia History of The Community Foundation in memory of Richard Slatten, a former President of the Virginia Genealogical Society.
  • The Magazine of Virginia Genealogy
    Vols. 1-40 are available on CD; vols. 34-45 are available for purchase as printed back issues.
