  1. Congrats, Shannon! Since this is an area I am interested in visiting, I just made my purchase and skimmed through it. Saw several things to follow-up on. Also purchased the land records pdf offered; another area of interest for me right now tracing some elusive folks. Thanks for the tips.


    1. Thank Sheila! If you like the books make sure to leave reviews for both of them. We would appreciate it.

      There is so much to do, see, and explore in the Richmond area it was hard to decide what to include and what to cut. You will have an amazing trip, I just love going down there be it for research or exploring with the family.
