Shenandoah County, Virginia: A Study of the 1860 Census, Volume 11 Revised Edition


This revised edition of Volume 11, the twelfth and final installment of this valuable genealogical resource for researchers of Shenandoah Valley families, contains the revised, comprehensive, every-name index listing each individual recorded in the census and also a number of ancillary facts and some analysis of the data. The first eleven volumes (Volume 1 has been revised and expanded to two volumes: Volume 1A and 1B) of this twelve-volume series contain data from the arbitrarily organized and annotated 1860 census, which is deciphered and presented as a companion resource to the original census materials. The census records include the number of people per family, their ages during the census, occupations held by family members, births, deaths, where buried, race, even histories of the land and area where they lived.

Most of the volumes in this series discuss approximately two hundred dwellings each. However, the first volume contained 385 dwellings. Since Volume 1’s original publication, several new sources of information were discovered. Due to this new abundance of information, the first volume has been revised and republished as two volumes: Volume 1A and Volume 1B.

Volume 11 includes an errata chapter containing corrections to those errors in the earlier volumes that have been reported. (original edition number 101-V5669).
