Montgomery County Circuit Court Clerk Erica W. Conner was awarded grant funding ($13,591 and $15,189) from the Record Preservation Program (CCRP). The funds were used to conserve and digitize eight sets of records to include:
- Record of Marriages 1785-1803
- Three Land Books for 1819-1823, 1861-1867, 1868-1872
- Entry Book A 1773-1783 for Montgomery and Fincastle Counties (Surveyor’s Fee Book)
- Will Book 1 (1822-1889)
- Will Book 10 (1864-1874)
"I'm very pleased as we continue to preserve records in our office with available funding provided by the CCRP. Each record is a time capsule in the history of Montgomery County, and my continued obligation to make sure they are available and protected for future generations," said Conner.
The CCRP is a part of the Library of Virginia's Local Records Services Branch. Funded through a $3.50 portion of the clerk’s recordation fee, the CCRP provides resources to help preserve and make accessible permanent circuit court records stored in the 120 circuit courts and at the Library of Virginia.
