Welcome to the Rural Genealogical Center Homepage presented by Longwood University. The Center is designed to provide assistance to area residents of Southside Virginia who seek to explore their family history and research their family trees. To that end, we offer this web page containing examples of genealogical research which public history students undertook in 1999.



Click on family sites to view students' genealogical web pages. Each of these links also contains bibliographies which readers many find helpful as well as additional ideas which may assist them in conducting their genealogical research.
