How the VAGenWeb Started
In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more that one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, some volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. Eventually, this was expanded to all states and all counties across the US.
My name is Joe Markovich. I am the coordinator for the Loudoun County Virginia website. Submittals of historical documents, photos, and just anything genealogial related are always welcome for publcation in this website. To volunteer to host a Virginia county, please contact the VAGenWeb state coordinator Jeff Kemp.

Look Up and Research Request
I am unable to do your personal research. I do not live in Lee county or in Illinois and I do not have access to additional records. If you do not see the information you are seeking in this site, I do not have it as everything I have is posted in this site.
Loudon County History
According to "Marriages of Loudoun County, 1757-1853" by Mary Alice Wertz: "Loudoun County was formed from Fairfax County, which was primarily Truro Parish, in 1757. In October 1748, Truro was divided at Difficult Run and the upper part became Cameron Parish. When Loudoun was created, it's boundaries were essentially those of Cameron Parish; on the north it was bounded by the Potomac River; on the south by Prince William County (which later became Fauquier); on the east by Difficult Run; and on the west by the Blue Ridge Mountains. In 1770, Shelburne Parish was created from the western part of Cameron and included, generally, the land west of Goose Creek running to the Blue Ridge.
