Dinwiddie's Land Tax Records

The Clerk's Office has converted the Land Books on Microfilm with the Library of Virginia from 1782 to 1885 into a pdf format for each year. These records are especially helpful when searching the land records prior to 1833. Prior to 1833 the deeds and land records were destroyed and this is the only record of land owners in the county.
