Historical Research

This is the start of a series on the resources and “how-to” of historical research.

I have been doing research in the clerk’s office at the  Pittsylvania County Courthouse for a number of years, and occasionally research at other courthouses (including in Danville). My advice is specifically for Southside Virginia courthouses, but some of it may be applicable at other courthouses and research institutions.

I also plan to write about research online, and at some libraries and other institutions.
