Shenandoah County, Virginia: A Study of the 1860 Census, Volume 5


This is the fifth installment of this valuable genealogical resource for researchers of Shenandoah Valley families. As in the preceding volumes, data from the haphazardly organized and annotated 1860 census is deciphered and presented as a companion resource to the original census materials. The census data, organized by dwelling number and family number, is given for each family; this is followed by detailed biographical information covering nearly every individual in each household. Information on most people includes birth and death dates, marriage dates, military activity, location of burial, education/occupation, children, second spouses, related families, census dwelling and family numbers, as well as anecdotal information about the lives of the individuals recorded. A bibliography and a full name index add to the value of this work.
