"The minute books of the old Virginia courts herein transcribed cover the District of West Augusta and Yohogania and Ohio Counties during the period when Virginia claimed and exercised jurisdiction over what are now the Pennsylvania counties of Washington, Greene, Fayette, Westmoreland, and Allegheny. ... The minute books of the Virginia courts held within the limits of southwestern Pennsylvania from 1775 to 1780, when the contest between the two states had temporarily abated, contain, in addition to land titles, transcripts of legal instruments of immense genealogical value such as deeds, mortgages, conveyances, probate records, administrations, contracts, suits, judgements, and oaths of allegiance ..." -- Foreword.

The Waldenmaier index includes only full names. It does not include those names where were only surnames.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
