Washington County, Virginia Minute Book 5, January 1841- October 1842. Jack Hockett. 2007.
Minute books are good sources for genealogical research, but they are often overlooked. Minute books contain the clerk's rough notes of court proceedings, which were later transcribed into an order book. Court order books were usually indexed and neat in appearance, while minute books were not. The author has provided a complete index for this and successive minute books in this series to afford easy access.
