Wright Family Records: Appomattox County, Virginia, Birth Records, Marriage Records, and Personal Property Tax Lists


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. This volume is a collection of Wright records from Appomattox County, Virginia. This work is divided into the following sections: birth records (1853-1896), marriage records (1845-1913), and personal property tax records (1845-1863). Each section contains source information and an index. Sources include official county records in the Library of Virginia in Richmond, the National Archives, and other references. A most helpful feature for each entry is the “identification” column, in which the author identifies the specific family and Wright ancestors from whom the named Wright descends.
