Book Review: "Lunenburg County, Virginia Marriages 1750-1853" with Last Name Index A-M

The following is a summary of the last name index of John Vogt and T. William Kethley, Jr.'s Lunenburg County, Virginia Marriages 1750-1853, 174 pages, appendices, figure, chart and map. Lunenburg County was created in 1746 from a portion of Brunswick County. 2,435 marriage records are reflected in the current volume. They are drawn from a variety of primary sources, including copies of typed bonds in the county court house (the original bonds are missing), scattered ministers' returns in will and deed books, and microfilm records in the Virginia State Library, Archives Division. Two appendices provide a date frequency and a listing of all ministers reporting returns. This is a soft cover reprint of a 1988 original, printed by New Papyrus Co. of Athens, Georgia.

FYI, the book you would get contains all letters A-Z but I broke them up here into two posts so they would not look so long.

Here are two sample entries from the book:
  • "Callis Pamelia F & Samuel W Oslin 17 Apr 1843; b - Gary Thompson min - John C Blackwell - 21 Apr 1843"
  • "Rainey Francis & Cissly M Gee 8 Jan 1847; date approximate min - Daniel Petty - from return list dated 8 Feb 1847"
The following is a list of names made from the surname frequency index at the front of the book:
