Description

Inasmuch as Nansemond County’s official records were totally destroyed by fires in 1734, 1779, and 1866, the work at hand, originally published in 1963 and itself now quite scarce, represents a valiant effort to reconstruct something of Nansemond’s genealogical heritage from the records of its surrounding counties. The core of the book consists of the contents of nearly 100 Bibles arranged alphabetically according to the surname of the book’s owner, and, thereunder, in progressions of marriages, births, and deaths. In all, more than 1,000 mostly 18th- and 19th-century inhabitants of Suffolk and Nansemond are here rescued from obscurity and further made accessible in the index to Bible records at the back. Also includes transcriptions of marriage records and several other miscellaneous lists.
