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.
New River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.
Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

Directions: From Scenic Rd (SR 94) go west 0.3 mile on Riverside Rd (Rt 274) to Minitree Acres Lane. Turn right. The old Jones home is on the left side of the driveway. Walk straight back behind the house, through the field to a gate at the edge of the woods, follow a roadway, through the woods about 0.5 mile. The cemetery is in a clearing at the top of the hill.
