Lynnhaven Parish Register, 1838-1913
Author: Alice Walter
Paperback, 154 pages
The work at hand is an indexed, facsimile copy of the actual parish register for Emanuel Episcopal Church (Lynnhaven Parish) situated in Kempsville, Virginia for the period 1838-1913. Researchers will find records of births, baptisms, confirmations, communicants, marriages, and burials for Emanuel Church, exactly as they were recorded by church officials during these 75 years. The late genealogist Alice Granberry Walter, who copied the original register for publication, also added a comprehensive surname index to the thousands of entries in its sometimes hard-to-read contents. Mrs. Walter also provides an informative Introduction that outlines the history of the parish.
