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.

New River Notes

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.

Site Map

Organization of New River Notes

There are three main categories of organization for this site:

  1. Counties - Information specific to a individual county can be found by going to the page for that county. Note that files under each county are organized into subcategories. The same subcategories are used under each county. Only categories that have files under them are shown.
  2. Historical Files - Many articles seem to cover a time period but not a specific county or topic. These type of articles have been organized by the periods they cover and in rough chronological order.
  3. Topical History - Other articles fit more into topics that span location and time. We have organized these under the main topics.

There's no perfect way to organize the broad range of files included in New River Notes. The major categories described above help but fall short. We do try to provide links under each of these categories to files that fall under two or more areas. The site map below can give you an overview of the organization. Use the Site Search window and navigation menus to explore New River Notes.
