General

As of November 2010, a query for individuals born in Page, Virginia at World Connect, results in more than 85,000 entries.

Compiled genealogies that treat multiple Page County families include:

  • O'Dell, Cecil. Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia. Marceline, Mo.: Walsworth Pub. Co., 1995. FHL Collection. One of the most impressively researched one-place studies in the United States. In a review, Dorman stated "Comprehensive studies such as this appear only rarerly. This volume should be in every Virginia genealogical collection."[1]
