Several helpful guides to places in Virginia have been published. Four of these are:

Hanson, Raus McDill. Virginia Place Names. Verona, Virginia: McClure Press, 1969. Topping, Mary, et al. Approved Place Names in Virginia. Charlottesville, Virginia: University Press of Virginia, 1971. (Family History Library fiche 6051296.) This is not a comprehensive gazetteer, but it lists all place names that have been approved by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names.

Gannett, Henry. A Gazetteer of Virginia. Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1904. (Family History Library film 897467 item 2; fiche 6019559.)

Martin, Joseph. A New and Comprehensive Gazetteer of Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Charlottesville: J. Martin, 1835. (FHL book 975 E5m; film 897469.)
