“Virginia Chronicle newspaper database holds key to hidden Buckingham County history”

“Conducting research for many of Virginia’s counties is an acknowledged challenge. For some, like Buckingham County, the loss of public records is so catastrophic that it has been described as “hopeless.” While missing public records may never magically reappear, an exciting new supplement is now available. The era of digitized, searchable historic newspapers has arrived, providing researchers with new hope. For anyone interested in Virginia’s history, the rapidly growing database at the Library of Virginia’s Virginia Chronicle is a treasure trove.”
