New River Notes — Complete

New River Notes

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

Note: Alleghany County was formed from Ashe in 1860 and the county split occurred before the census was taken. This is why the 1860 column contains both the number of slaves and the county the slave owner now resides.
