James City County, Virginia, LOOKUPS!
Many of James City County's original records have been lost. Often records of James City County citizens are found in nearby counties, so it is advisable to look there, too.
- Please ask for one name per e-mail. If you know an approximate time period for your individual, please include that in your lookup request.
- Please do not ask for all references to a surname. That could be hundreds in some sources!
- Please understand that lookup volunteers cannot violate copyrights on books. This means that they cannot photocopy pages for you or quote long passages. They can tell you if a name appears in an index, and they can also tell you briefly, in their own words, what the book says about your individual of interest. You can get more extensive information by buying the book, or checking it out of a library. You can obtain books from distant libraries through inter-library loans.
