King and Queen County, Virginia by Alfred Bagby Jr.Excerpt from King and Queen County, Virginia
But the author has made great compensation for the loss of so much original information by the diligence of his research and the faithful arrangement of his findings. His pages unfold before our eyes the pioneer settlement of this territory; its subsequent formation into the political division known as a county; the orderly development of this people under the law, customs, religion, and social life of a real English community; the names of many individuals and families who have added substance, culture, dignity, and luster to a brave and refined people; the arrest and almost overthrow of this civilization by a, disastrous war; and the subse quent resumption of communal life under radically changed social and economic conditions.
This narrative will be of grateful and affectionate interest to the sons and daughters of this noble old county, and to Virginians everywhere; and, in after years, to those seeking information for a larger history of our race on these new shores.

The site is organized by directories for each state, followed by sub-directories by county, then by subject wills, cemeteries, etc. USGenWeb Archives Search Engine If you have any electronically formatted files of Virginia documents you would like to submit and that meet the guidelines of the project, please contact Alice Warner Brosey. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to create this page for all states, establishing the USGenWeb. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for a state page. If the state in which you are interested does not have a page and you wish to be responsible for it, please contact the USGenWeb Coordinator.
