In Response To: Loudoun County, VA, Book ()
: I am not yet familiar with this book, but any genalogical researcher of A/A or N/A families originating in Northern VA, Maryland, and the Northern Neck will find a wealth of genealogical data in three booklets by Townsend Lucas. These are available in the Loudon County Courthouse and the Thomas Balsch Library - both in Leesburg, VA. In some cases several generations of slave data are available. Physical descriptions are available for many individuals, along with dated of birth, deeds of emancipation, places of birth, etc. Bear in mind that although detribalized Indians were called freeNegroes from the 1600's, Indians were oficially cleansed from Virginia in 1785 and were from that time officially mulattoes or free Negroes.
