Petersburg VA register 1794-1819
I have added an annotated text of the Petersburg VA Register, 1794-1819 to the abstracts of emancipations we gathered from surrounding counties. Besides the text of the register are citations to the manumissions of those registered, previous registrations, many marriages, appearances before the court etc. It is available at http://libguides.usu.edu/virginia-manumissions I hope this will prove a useful addition to the wonderful work Paul H has done and useful to all who have an interest.
