Doing research in Botetourt County
Posted by: Brenda Ericsson (ID *****6379) Date: May 18, 2008 at 22:46:15

Next month, I may have the opportunity to do a couple of days of genealogy research in Botetourt County. I haven't been there before.

I'm researching 18th century families who lived for a time in the county, and am especially interested in court records, deeds, military, vital records,taxes or any original records/films on the individuals.

1. Would it be more efficient, time-wise, to go to the Botetourt court house/library or to go to LVA in Richmond for the same information?
2. If I come to Fincastle, where is the closest place to stay?

I'm researching the following: Henry Baughman 1753- ; Christopher Baughman 1788-1861 m Rachel Glasburn; Zopher Carpenter 1730s- ; David Glasburn 1750- m. Elizabeth Carpenter; Sampson Sawyers 1730s- ; George M. Sawyers 1779- , m. Rachel Rees; John R. Sawyers 1792- .

Thanks for any advice.
