1 in stock
Originally published between 1938 and 1949in thirty-four paperback volumes, these Virginia Colonial Abstracts brought together a wealth of data from the records of Tidewater Virginia–vital records of birth, marriage, and death; tax lists; court orders; militia lists; wills; and deeds. The result of extensive research in county courthouses, municipal and state archives, and private collections, most of the abstracts were based on the earliest records known to exist–in the case of Accomack County, for instance, the oldest continuous records of English-speaking America; in the case of King and Queen County, which suffered the loss of its records in 1864, a unique collection of eighteenth-century materials still in private hands. Paperback, good condition, uncirculated library edition. 103 pages.
