Re: Bound Contract Records
In Response To: Re: Bound Contract Records ()
Ascertain the court in Virginia that had the authority to bind people to indentures or apprenticeships. It would be at the county level. Then look at the records for that court. Many jurisdictions used a separate book to record indentures or apprenticeships, but some jurisdictions recorded them in the same book as other petitions to the same court.
