I have Virginia ancestors? So do a LOT of people doing genealogy research.
It’s another one of those wonderful actions that a state can do to fix one problem and instead REALLY screw the researching genealogist or historian. And in this case, the state is Virginia. Ms. Russell gives full details in clear terms. She also provides a way for us — that’s YOU and ME — to send an email to help “fix” the problem. REMEMBER! No action is approving what has been done. Keep that in mind if you ever need or have relied on a Virginia court house record.
