WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION (WPA) RECORDS OF PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VIRGINIA. W. R. Hobbs, Teresa A. Kelley, and Sallie C. Pusey. Softcover, 2001, 6x9, Index, 849 pp.
Material reproduced from the Virginia Historical Inventory relating to this county. It describes cemeteries, churches, history, homes, industry, schools, towns, personal papers and other subjects.
The Virginia Historical Records Survey began in 1936 and in 1939, the Virginia State Library assumed control. Upon termination of the project in 1942, the unpublished records were deposited in the Virginia State Library, Richmond Virginia.
The material contained in this publication was copied from microfilm, scanned, edited and compiled in its current format by three residents of Prince William County; Mr. W. R. Hobbs of Manassas, Ms Teresa A. Kelley of Dale City and Mrs. Sallie C. Pusey of Haymarket. The material was reproduced from the Virginia Historical Inventory on Microfilm 975.5 Vir, Reel 22 of 29 which is located at the Bull Run Regional Library in Manassas, a part of the Prince William Public Library System. The record number is shown in many document subject lines and is the number needed to locate the record on the microfilm reel. The material herein has been reproduced exactly as it was in the original documents. No attempt has been made to alter the contents of this collection, thus the words and data are as presented by the original researchers. Repeated evaluations of the same sites are also included. The compilers are unable to say whether the Historical or Genealogical Information is correct or merely information obtained through personal interviews with those living during this time period. Further, those who read this material must realize that it reflects the local area as it was in the 1930s; it is presented to preserve the historical perspective in that era.
