Powhatan County Current Queries

These are current queries for Powhatan County. If you would like to have your query added to this page, please send information in reference to the name of the person in question, dates, location and your name and email address, to the county host Jennie.

I have included some guidelines to help you in writing a good query... Put the most important information first, which is by the way, the question or statement telling what you are looking for specifically.

Example:  I am searching for the marriage date (birth, death, given name, etc.) for Jane SMITH who married John Doe.

In the next paragraph state background information such as estimated dates, any siblings or spouses, where you have looked, why you think the person is in this state, etc. not already stated in the first statement.  In other words, summarize the deadends you have already hit, so we don't suggest those paths again.

Are you ready then? Let's begin!
