Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788425633, Paperback)

The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. The sources for the records listed in this volume are the Campbell County, Virginia, Birth Records available from the Library of Virginia in Richmond; the Campbell County, Virginia, Marriage Records available from the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Rustburg, Virginia; Marriages of Campbell County, Virginia 1782-1810 by Lucy Baber and Hazel Williamson (1971); and Campbell County, Virginia, Marriage Bonds 1781-1854 by the Genealogical Society of Utah (1937). Information in the birth records includes date, name of child, color, sex, live or still birth, place of birth, father's name, occupation, and residence, mother's name, number of births, name of informant, and informant's relationship to child. Information in the marriage records includes book page, date, names, bride's parents, surety, witnesses, and name of marrying pastor. Records from 1857 also include place, husband's and wife's age, single or widowed, places of birth and residence, husband's and wife's parents, and husband's occupation. After 1873 the couple's race was also noted. Each section has its own index. A most helpful feature for each entry is the identification column, in which the author identifies the specific family and Wright ancestors from whom the named Wright descends.
