Employing RCC to build your Family Tree

Recently, a gentlemen came into the library inquiring about genealogical material that he might use to help King & Queen County residents, retrace the paths their ancestors walked and construct their family trees.

The resulting search led us through a plethora of information. Did you know that the Glenns Campus Library holds Gloucester County Census Reports from almost every decade of the nineteenth century? Or, that it houses family histories  from Middlesex County, including marriage records, and a census report form 1810? The Library also houses an extensive history of Henrico Parish from 1611-1904.

Those are just  some of the items you can find at the Glenns Campus. At Warsaw, one can find histories of Westmoreland County, King William, Cherokee peoples, court records from King & Queen and Lancaster County, as well as valuable other statistics. The Warsaw Campus Library, which doubles as the Richmond County Public Library also houses RCC’s only microfilm reader, which we’re proud to say, is a new addition to our collection.

So, if you’re interested in some family research or local history, or know someone who is, direct them to the RCC Library!  We would be glad to help them with their research!
