Virginia Sources of Civil Service
Copyright 2015 Debbie Duay, Fort Lauderdale, FL. All Rights Reserved.
Many Virginia residents served in some type of civil capacity such as jurors or county officials during the American Revolution.
If your ancestor served in a civil capacity between 19 Apr 1775 - 26 Nov 1783, he is eligible for civil service.
Microfilms of original records can be ordered for FREE from the Library of Virginia (LVA) through your local library's interlibrary loan service.
When ordering a microfilm from the LVA, you must specify 1) the name of the county, 2) the reel number, and 3) the description of the film.
