Digitized images of old Virginia Wills, estates and marriages. Because the colony was established in the earliest part of the 1600s, the collection equates to 400 years! Anyone doing genealogical research in the Virginia records is aware of how extensive the work is. One of the factors is that all of the original will books kept by the clerk of each county is housed at the Virginia State Library.
