The Gloucester Genealogical Society of Virginia was constituted in 1996 and has sought to provide information about the county records to the public for genealogical research. From its beginning, the Society has endeavored to make this information available through its journal, “The Family Tree Searcher.”  The death records for Gloucester County from 1865 - 1890 have been transcribed by members of the Society, and portions of them have been published in the journals.  In May 2000, these records were publish as, "Death Records of Gloucester County, Virginia, 1865-1890."  The book can be obtained by mail-order or viewed online, as indicated below.
