Types of Data We're Looking to Post

Send transcribed biographies, obituaries, vital records, census records, newspaper gleanings,
military records, or if you have walked cemeteries and have transcribed those names and dates,
and any other type of data (other than gedcoms and trees) you think would be helpful to researchers.



This County currently does not have a host.
This means that there is no one available to help answer your questions about this county's history

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.

The county was created in 1843 by the Virginia General Assembly and named for Richmond newspaper publisher Thomas Ritchie.
Its county seat is Harrisville.
