Bedford County was not required to keep birth records until 1853. Therefore there are none at the courthouse. For the mostpart this is true for all Va. counties. Here we look to fanily bibles, newspaper records (after about 1800, Rev. War pension applications ,etc. The same is true for death records. The County was wilderness in 1754 when it was cut off of Lunenburg County. There are very few records that survived except the deed books and the order books. As a rule neither of these mention vital statistics. The Marriage records are virtually gone until after the Revolution. Sorry.
