Pittsylvania County, Virginia, Circuit Court Records Preserved Through Grant

Pittsylvania_County.svgPittsylvania County Circuit Court recently received a Circuit Court Records Preservation (CCRP) Grant from the Library of Virginia in the amount of $13,398 for the preservation and restoration of public records contained within the Pittsylvania County Clerk’s Office.

CCRP consulting archivist Greg Crawford said, ““The value is preserving the history of this locality. There’s also a genealogy value to it. A lot of these records are highly valued by genealogists who are doing their family research, looking for their ancestors in deed books and will books, but also the value of the books themselves. These were books that were done in the 1700s and 1800s and they tell about what life was like and what was going on in [Pittsylvania County] at that time. They tell stories.”
