Welcome to Buckingham County, Virginia     Family History and  Genealogy

 

     Welcome to Buckingham County, a free access family history and genealogy web site, a part of the VAGenWeb and USGenWeb Projects.  I am the host for Buckingham County and I am currently becoming acquainted with all of the truly fascinating history that  honors Buckingham County.  I will research and contribute all I can,  but I encourage each one of you to be a participant of this project and help develop the spirit and history of the families of Buckingham County.  Since Buckingham is one of the Virginia counties where records were destroyed or burned,  even more dependence is necessary for researchers and volunteers to submit data for the benefit of family members across the country and with roots in Buckingham County. If you have any material you can share, i.e. family documents, images, photos, cemetery information, source material, birth, marriage, etc.,  please send them to me and I will display it on the Buckingham County web site quickly.  

     Cemeteries are always of concern due to age, deterioration, and vandalism.  Many times a cemetery transcript and/or tombstone photographs are the only link to the past (especially in a burned county), thus having the ability to open many doors for many families.   As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, especially if the picture pertains to a loved one.  I will support any effort the best I can for volunteers to turn over every rock in Buckingham County, finding and documenting every cemetery, large or small, for an everlasting record.  If you have any suggestions, comments, sources, or just what-have-you ?, please communicate, send me a line.   I will be very responsive to your request and/or needs.  

      I would also like to commend the previous host for Buckingham County,  Ms. Carol Morrison, whose contributions and devotions to Buckingham County, and to her ancestors of Buckingham County, was an inspiration to many researchers.  I am indebted to her and and I am sorry her schedule has precluded her to cut back on some of her areas of interest.  She will certainly be missed, but I will earnestly  continue her efforts and her commitment to the families of  Buckingham County, Virginia.     Douglas Anderson

     If you would like to host a county in Virginia, please contact Fred Spradlin, the VAGenWeb Project Coordinator. You do not have to live in the county your adopting or even the same state.

     Buckingham County was formed in 1761 from Albemarle County and was probably named either for the English county  of that name or for the Duke of Buckingham. According to some sources, however, the name came from Archibald Cary's tract of land called Buckingham, on what was then Willis's Creek. The county seat (now Buckingham) was first called Maysville. The second courthouse, designed by Thomas Jefferson, was burned in 1869, when many of the records were destroyed. The Clerk of the Circuit Court has birth and death records from 1896 and Marriage, Divorce and Probate Records from 1869.

Parishes: Tillotson.

About the USGenWeb Project 

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to create this page for all states, establishing the  USGenWeb. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for a state page. If you would like to contribute your data or create a county page within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining your state page.

Data contributed to this VAGenWeb site must comply with Fair Use and copyright practices. Documents contributed to the USGenWeb and VAGenWeb remain the property of the contributors.
