Researching Genealogy

The Northampton Historic Preservation Society is offering the lecture “Researching Genealogy in the Northampton County Clerk’s Office” Friday, July 30 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Christ Church Parish Hall, Eastville, Virginia. This is the first in a series of Northampton Historic Preservation Society genealogy lectures planned by Eastville historian, Dr. David Scott.

Dr. Scott will share his tips on how to use the resources of the Northampton County Clerk’s Office, which houses the oldest continuous court records in America. Learn how to use these remarkable records to aid your research and, perhaps, to solve some mysteries in your family history. During a power point presentation, Dr. Scott will introduce participants to the record room in the clerk's office, detail how to use these valuable original records, and answer general research questions.

NHPS is fundraising to restore the historic 1907 Jail on the Northampton Court Green for use as a museum and genealogy information center. In lieu of a registration fee, we hope you will consider donating to the 1907 Jail Restoration Fund. Register to hold your spot now at: www.northamptonhistoricpreservationsociety.com
