Past News Releases 

Welcome to the Historic Records & Deed Research Division

Loudoun is one of only a few counties in the Commonwealth that has records dating from its formation in 1757 from Fairfax County. The Historic Records and Deed Research division  includes all historic court records 1757-1980s and land records from 1757-present.Research can be conducted by using both in-house and online databases and paper indexes. Our staff can provide guidance and suggestions to start your research but cannot provide research services or legal advice. To prepare for your visit please review our online links to indexes and county databases which provide a starting point in your records research.  For news, updates, and interesting articles, subscribe to the Historic Records & Deed Research quarterly newsletter "Little Gems." If you find interesting records in your own research that you would like to share, we would love to hear about it!  Please consider submitting your own "Little Gems" which may be shared in our next newsletter.

Electronic Devices Policy 

The Historic Records/Archives public research room is now connected with the Courts Complex as a result of office modifications and construction work associated with the Courts Expansion project. There is a court order that establishes court security protocols that serves the best interests of all visitors to the various courts and court-related offices in the Courts Complex. Therefore, electronic mobile devices such as cellphones with cameras, laptop computers, and electronic tablets are currently not permitted in the Courts Complex. To assist the patrons of the Historic Records/Archives research room, the Clerk’s Office provides computer workstations with internet access so our patrons can review the websites of other historic records museums and historic records research organizations to assist with research needs in the Clerk’s Office. For specific questions about electronic mobile devices, please feel free to contact our Historic Records/Archives deputy clerks at (703) 737-8775.

**Please note no food or drink is allowed in the Historic Records.
