New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

We're not finished. A site like this can't just freeze in time. It must be maintained, .... Read More

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 valley mapNew 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.

The 1800 Grayson County, Virginia Personal Property Tax List

Since most of the 1800 Grayson County census was burned in 1814, tax lists are about the only way to obtain similar data. This record, taken from information on file in Library of Virginia does that to some degree. The first column is the tax payer, presumably the same as the head of the household. The next column is the number of white males over age 21. The third column is the number of horses owned. The next column lists the number of slaves over age 16, and the last column lists the number of slaves between 12 and 16 years of age. If no number is shown it should be assumed to be zero.
