Filmed under the title: Land Office military certificates 1782-1876.

"Upon examination and approval of documentation of Revolutionary War military service, the governor issued a certificate on which the Land Office register then issued a warrant for bounty lands. These certificates are printed forms filled in with the name of the individual, his rank, whether he served in a state or continental line unit, and the length of such service. They are dated, signed, and filed in individual folders with supplemental papers presented with the claim other than those actually proving military service." -- Virginia Land Office inventory, p. 23

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.
