Expand your research into African-American heritage by taking advantage of the resources at the Hanover County Circuit Court. Hanover County was one of the first counties to digitize the 1866 listing of pre-Civil War marriages of formerly enslaved people and contains marriage records dating back to 1863. Deeds, will, chancery, and probate cases are also digitized. Roseanne Shalf, local historian with the Ashland Museum and the Ashland National Historic District, will present real-life examples of how to research Hanover County records. All are welcome to share your interests and bring your questions.
