Birth & Death Records

 

On 1-22-2004 I asked Mr. Wendell Peters, Floyd Co., VA Clerk of Court, about Birth & Death Records kept at Floyd Court House. This was his reply dated 01-23-04: “We have no death or birth records except for an unorganized book from 1853 to 1872.  We have no actual documents, but refer everyone to the Bureau of Vital Records in Richmond.”

 

The “unorganized book” was transcribed by Marjorie Fluor and Marguerite Tise & published by Marjorie Fluor in a book titled:

 

1853-1872 Birth and Death Records

And the Zion Lutheran Church Register

 

I bought my most recent copy at the Wilderness Road Museum, Pulaski Co., VA in 2005.
