Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This Site is Available for Adoption!

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this website become a useful research tool.

If you would like to join our group and become the host of this county, please visit our Volunteer Page and contact Kim.
(A desire to transcribe data and basic webpage skills are necessary)


We regret that we have no time to perform personal research for anybody.
All data we come across will be added to this site, so please keep checking back here.

County History
The Virginia General Assembly created Northumberland County in 1648.  Settlement began in the Northern Neck of this area, about 1635.  It was originally known as the Chickacoan Indian District.  The first evidence of the name Northumberland was in 1644, in the colonial records.  Lancaster County and Westmoreland County were created out of Northumberland County in 1652-3.
