Sources

  1. For a 1790 census substitute tax list see Netti Schreiner-Yantis and Florene Speakman Love, The 1787 Census of Virginia, 3 vols. (Springfield, Va.: Genealogical Books in Print, 1987) (FHL Book 975.5 R4sn) (WorldCat entry) among others. For the 1800 census substitute tax lists are published county-by-county in the periodical The Virginia Genealogist (FHL Book 975.5 B2vg) (WorldCat entry). For the missing 15 counties of the 1810 federal census see Netti Schreiner-Yantis, A Supplement to the 1810 Census of Virginia: Tax Lists of the Counties for Which the Census is Missing (Springfield, Va.: Genealogical Books in Print, 1971) (FHL Book 975.5 R4s) (WorldCat entry).
  2. “Records from Burned Counties,” Virginia Genealogical Society Bulletin, 4, issue 3 (July 1966) (FHL Book 975.5 B2vs v. 4) (WorldCat entry).
  3. Carol McGinnis, Virginia Genealogy: Sources and Resources (Baltimore: Genealogical Publ., 1993), 39-44. (FHL Book 975.5 A3m) (WorldCat entry). For example, processioning, walking private land boundaries to restore lost landmarks, was recorded in Episcopal parish books.
  4. Peter Wilson Coldham published a series of books indexing British court records to help find indentured servants, and convicts transported to America. His immigrants in bondage series is indexed at Ancestry.com. Virginia court records may show releases from indenture, convict sentences, or slave manumissions. Some counties have slave registers, and deeds may show slaves sold. Wills (probate records) may also show slave names. Plantation records sometimes list slaves.
  5. American Source Records in England (Genealogy.com, 2000) (FHL CD-ROM no. 9 pt. 364) (WorldCat entry). Also indexed at Ancestry.com.
