Robert Brock was an archivist for Virginia in the first part of the Twentieth Century. And known for his shrewd concern for the original documents of Virginia–many of which were not yet in the Virginia State Library.
If the Virginia legislature would not pay the price of the documents he found, Brock made arrangements for Henry E. Huntington, of the Huntington Library in San Marino CA. These include tax rolls, military land warrants–the individual warrants issued to soldiers directly–and land warrants issued to new immigrants as well as many other kinds of records.
Next week, I will be at the Huntington Library, doing Virginia research. And I am very excited about the opportunity to spend the week there.
Stay tuned. I hope to get my system working shortly and I can share what I find with you. I am writing this on a borrowed computer–which will not let me access Twitter or Facebook . The computer just resets to another online presence and ignores mine. If Kathryn, my webmaster, can get me in, I will continue with my Research Tips and other genealogy delights.
I have so missed talking with you, my readers. I still am doing much Virginia research for clients and for my book on Virginia jurisdictions. Your favorite Virginia genealogist, Arlene Eakle http://arleneeakle.com
PS Talk to you again soon.
