A Guide to the Preparation of County Road Histories


This publication is intended to set out in simple, easily understood terms the knowledge gleaned from the research and writing of Albemarle County Roads, 1725-1816; the sources of information used, as well as other possible sources; the information recording techniques used; certain useful rules of evidence, as well as some of the pitfalls to be avoided; how the analysis of this information proceeded; and, finally, and probably most importantly, an attempted formulation of some minimum standards for an acceptable road history.
