1)The Kate Waller Library in Alexandria VA has a very helpful web site for researching Virginia Families:
has online databases for 1850 census, index for Alexandria Gazette obits for 1916-1946, and more.

For those with an Alexandria VA library card, they can access the Heritage Quest Online.

2)Search the Washington Post archives at

The archives contain stories from The Washington Post as far back as December 6th 1877 fee to search the Post archives, and only a small fee to retrieve the full text of any article in the archives.

3)Consider a subscription to genealogy library for about $35 a year...includes searchable census, Washington Post, many other newspapers, and much more
