Washington County, Virginia Deed Book 32, 9 December 1874-20 January 1877 (primarily 1875-1876)


One can locate considerable information on the county's history and genealogy by referencing its deed books, containing not only deeds (Indentures of Bargain and Sale) but relinquishment of dower, powers of attorney and Deeds of Gift, Deeds of Trust, etc. This includes the all-important location of female surnames and also valuable clues to the misconstrued and translated (Anglicized) German and Swiss German names. This is a faithful transcription with the original deed book index provided.
