Craig,

This is a wonderful accomplish.  I've very excited and will definitely use this website for research exercises for the African American Genealogical Research course.  It's exciting to see this wonderful index for your county.  

Thanks,

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the launch of a major initiative that was begun three years ago.  Thanks to a matching grant from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. It is an every name index with notes and abstracts of the Lancaster County Estates from 1835-1865. It would take me hours to explain all of this. Fortunately, this is not necessary because it is all explained on the web site hosted by the Mary Ball Washington Museum and Library, to whom the grant was given and on whose behalf I a pleased to announce this.

Yes, we know that that there are a few quirks and some items that need more clarification. We will be most appreciative of constructive feedback. 

You can read all about the project and search the data base starting from here:
