CD: Loudoun County, Virginia Minute/Order Books: January 1804 to October 1820 - Patricia Duncan. This book contains abstracts of the Loudoun County, Virginia Minute and Order Books, covering the time period: January 1804 to October 1820. These records are available at the courthouse in Leesburg, Virginia, as well as on microfilm available from the Interlibrary Loan Service of the Library of Virginia. Many of the entries in these court books are short, often only one or two lines long. Much of the information presented here is an exact transcription of the entry, while the remainder are abstracts of longer entries. Following the introduction, the article, “Getting the Most from Virginia’s Court Records: Order Books, Minute Books & Ended Causes,” reprinted by permission of the author, Victor S. Dunn, CG©, gives a detailed explanation as to the value of the information in the Order Books and how it can be beneficial in genealogical research. This article points out the wide variety of information that can be found in Order and Minute books including: records of minors, probate and land records, immigration and indentured servants, tithable information, road orders, military records, occupational licenses and civil appointments, moral offences, and court suits. Record access, research tips, and the importance of ended cause loose papers complete this article. 2014, CD, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, 2032 pp. 101-CD5515 ISBN: 078845515X
