Five different Virginia gazettes were published during the period 1736-1780, sometimes simultaneously. These films contain the following: 1) Virginia gazette (1736-1750) / ed. Wm. Parks; 2) Virginia gazette (1751-1778) / eds. Hunter, Royale, Purdie & Dixon, Dixon & Hunter; 3) Virginia gazette (1766-1776) / eds. Rind, Pinkney (Also known as Rind's Virginia gazette); 4) Virginia gazette (1775-1780) / eds. Purdie, Clarkson & Davis; and 5) Virginia gazette (1779-1780) / eds. Dixon & Nicholson (Moved to Richmond and was published there under the same title, 1780-1781. Films do not contain Richmond issues.) Preface indicates there may have been only three Virginia gazettes by combining together the Gazette (ed. Parks), the Gazette (eds. Hunter, Royale, etc.), and the Gazette (eds. Dixon & Nicolson).

Some issues were missed by the index.

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 FamilySearch.org 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.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
