1)The Kate Waller Library in Alexandria VA has a very helpful web site for researching Virginia Families:
http://www.alexandria.lib.va.us/lhsc/special_collections_home.html

http://www.alexandria.lib.va.us/lhsc/genresources.html
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
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/searches/mainsrch.htm

The archives contain stories from The Washington Post as far back as December 6th 1877 ...no 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 Godfrey.org genealogy library for about $35 a year...includes searchable census, Washington Post, many other newspapers, and much more
