Record Loss[edit | edit source]

War.jpg
There was substantial record loss from the courthouse in Dinwiddie County, Virginia the last few months of the American Civil War, 1861-1865.[4]

Surviving records: Pre-Civil War marriages, deeds, wills, chancery order books.[4]

  • Lost censuses: 1790, 1800, 1890

Visit the Library of Virginia's website to determine exactly what records have been lost and their Lost Records Localities Database to find additional resources.


B. Darrell Jackson, CG, exploits virtually every surviving source from Dinwiddie County, Virginia in the following publication:

  • Jackson, B. Darrell. Jackson Family History: Descendants of Robert Jackson of Dinwiddie County, Virginia, to Nine Generations, ca. 1760-2008: with Ancestry of Allied Families -- Johnson, Blakely, Shields, Cooper, Stiles, Kitchell, Pierson, Bruen, Ogden, Swaine, and Owsley. Baltimore, Md.: Gateway Press, 2009. FHL Book 929.273 J137j

Genealogists with Dinwiddie County roots would benefit from exploring the list of sources he found and used in this book and applying them to their own families.
