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 county was occupied by the Nadowa tribe, an Iroquoian people of American Indians, prior to the European settlers.  The Nadowa tribe lived on the only river in the county, the Nadowa.  The name was changed to Nottoway.  Formerly known as Nottoway Parish before the county established government.  In 1788 Nottoway Parish became Nottoway County.  This county prospered in its early days, due to tobacco.  The county contributed to the Confederate cause during the Civil War, creating two infantry companies: The Nottoway Rifle Guards & Captain Richard Irby's Nottoway Grays; Jeffress Artillery Battery and the Nottoway Troop of the 3rd Virginia Cavalry.  The two infanty companies served in the 18th VA Regiment.
