 3.  Marriages in the New River Valley, Virginia: Mongtomery, Floyd, Pulaski, and Giles Counties
Therese A. Fisher
(1991), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 336 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Montgomery County was created in 1777, and became the parent county of numerous other counties in present-day western Virginia and West Virginia, including: Floyd, Pulaski, and Giles Counties which span most of the New River Valley. Since many of the Valley families were closely connected by intermarriage, the joint presentation of their marriage data should be helpful to researchers interested in that region, and it also affords a more economical format for publishing the information. The data presented here includes the marriage bonds, marriage licenses (including applications for marriage licenses), and marriage records (generally derived from minister's returns) as found in the courthouse for each of these jurisdictions. The source of each record is identified by letter codes. Entries are alphabetically arranged by grooms with a cross-index to brides.
Price: 26.50 USD


 4.  Marriages of Orange County, Virginia, 1757-1880
Therese A. Fisher, A.G.
2006, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 366 pp, paperback, Heritage Books
Orange County, Virginia, records are remarkably intact, with the earliest marriages recorded in 1757. Unfortunately, this does not mean that every marriage performed in Orange County was recorded in the bonds, ministers’ returns and marriage licenses in the county courthouse. Some marriages were recorded in fee books and deed books, and other records may exist among private papers that were never recorded. The information preserved on these pages was extracted from courthouse bonds, ministers’ returns and marriage licenses. Some entries include additional information gleaned from Orange County death records and the William and Mary Quarterly (1st and 2nd series). Entries are arranged alphabetically by the groom’s surname and typically include the full name of the groom, the full name of the bride; date of marriage; name of minister and/or sometimes other family members in attendance or bondsman (typically for the bride). Some entries also include age, place of birth, place of marriage, place of residence, occupation, parent(s) names and/or other valuable data. “Person of Color” is listed for some entries. A list of ministers is provided. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
Price: 28.50 USD


 5.  Skeletons in the Closet: 200 Years of Murders in Old Virginia
Therese A. Fisher
(2001), 2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 136 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Sensational aspects aside, these murders highlight a little known secret of genealogical detective work. While court and newspaper records were searched for murder victims or perpetrators, curiously, few of the victims or murderers appeared in any other records normally equated with genealogical research. The families involved in these cases often simply disappeared from the records, whether they were victims or accused; convicted or found not guilty. The study of genealogy requires a study of the social and historical aspects of a time and place. Skeletons in the Closet examines these influences in early Virginia, from the wealthy tidewater families who settled their disputes with duels, to the Civil War soldiers and free blacks who were more likely to meet death in a tavern brawl. This book even reaches into the 20th century, ending with a few unsolved cases. Dozens of names of local citizens are revealed as witnesses and jurors. Included is a chronology of murders from 1689-1994, population tables, lists of justices and sheriffs, notes on weather conditions, maps and photos.
Price: 18.50 USD


 6.  Vital Records of Three Burned Counties: Births, Marriages, and Deaths of King and Queen, King William, and New Kent Counties, Virginia, 1680-1860
Therese A. Fisher
(1995), 2006, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 154 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The author is the first person to attempt to compile some of the nearly two centuries of missing information from this region. Ms. Fisher recreated the information from church records, newspapers, family Bibles, private notes, deeds, records from other counties, and difficult-to-find, out-of-print county histories from the early 1900s. Whenever possible, an entry includes: date of birth, marriage, and/or death, place of residence, and names of parents. There are also about 150 slave entries, which include the names of their owners. Each entry has a source indentified which allows the researcher to verify the information.
Price: 19.50 USD
