Re: Slaveowners in Nelson County,VA

Cathy:
Sorry, I don't have that book in my possession to check for you. I selected those items appearing on this web site from the book I reviewed at the Latter Day Saints (Mormon) Library, in Salt Lake City. You may want to check with one of their branch libraries, a library near your residence, or with the Library of Congress to see if it can be borrowed via a intra-library loan. Eventually, I intend to have my own, just for the outstanding job they created on the overall history of this county.

This book is excellent,$60 if you pick it up in Nelson County, or $70 to mail it to you. Of course, if it contains valuable information which helps you in your research, the price is worthwhile. It is a a "coffee table" hardback, put together as a pictorical history accompanied by corresponding text which describes past events and places in Nelson County. Only one of my family surnames appear in it, so you cannot compare it to a document listing all persons in the county, similar to a census. My suggestion would be to review it first, at a library.

The Nelson County Historical Society, P.O. Box 474, Lovingston, VA 22949, per their web site had a few copies remaining for sale. You may want to check with this organization for an update if you choose to purchase it. I am not an agent - just another researcher. (smile)
