Albemarle County, Virginia “was formed in 1744 by an act of the General Assembly. Its original land area included today’s counties of Amherst, Buckingham, Fluvanna, and Nelson, much of Appomattox and part of Campbell. Albemarle County assumed its present boundaries in 1777. It was named in honor of William Ann Keppel, second Earl of Albemarle, who was then governor of the colony. The first county seat was located in Scottsville. In 1761, however, county government was moved to Charlottesville, which was established as a town in 1762 and established as a city on 1888.”*

County Histories

Vital records, land records, tax records, and voting records are some records potentially kept at the county level. Many county histories include the history of the area, the early inhabitants and notable people, early officers and representatives, military service, the geology, roads, and waterways and more. County histories can provide valuable information about our ancestors and the information may include women, for whom records are often more difficult to obtain.
