Colonial dating and marriage
Due to the difficulty of tracing African Americans prior to 1866, most of whom were enslaved, indexers felt compelled to include this information in their indexes.We have retained this term here as a part of the historical record and to convey the relevance of the individuals' names to the time in which they were recorded.Bible MURPHY Bible CHAFFIN Records CHAFFIN Marriages HOGAN Marriages Society of Friends (Quaker) Marriages, 16 August, 1778 MARKHAM Marriages to 1850, Bride Index MARKHAM Marriage Bonds Marriages from Wm.

Some obvious errors have been corrected in the transition from card index file to database, but researchers should use caution in accepting the information in the index as accurate without consulting the original source material.
Original sources were not referenced in the creation of the database from the card files.
The card index files were originally organized by county.
The number of entries listed under each county varies greatly, with the following counties having the largest indexes: Augusta, Caroline, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Gloucester, Hanover, Northumberland, Prince George, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Sussex.
