Julie Cabitto will share information on the Library of Virginia's Chancery Records at the FRGS meeting, Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 7:00 p.m. at the Salem Church Branch Library.  Julie has been been actively researching & entering record information on the computer since she was 16. She first looked at chancery records at the LVA in 2003, and has been learning from them ever since. One thing she does with chanceries if there is a plat, is find USGS maps, then compare with present day Google maps. Her biggest focus in VA has been Mecklenburg & Brunswick counties. She has made a number of visits there to find cemeteries & interview people, based on info found in chanceries. By way of PowerPoint she will show step by step how to go to the LVA index page, USGS maps, & how to use that to find cemeteries today.
