Looking Back Newsletter for Lee County, VA, Hancock County & Claiborne County, TN




My purpose for starting this online newsletter is to provide some valuable information that will aid in your genealogy research.

I am attempting to compile in one place all the data that is available online for the following counties:

Lee County, Virginia

Claiborne County, Tennessee

Hancock County, Tennessee

This will not happen overnight. Doing a newsletter will enable me to add new links as I find them, add some research tips and many other interesting tidbits.

I will be adding some data for the counties mentioned above that I have transcribed on my own.  Most of my ancestors either settled in these counties or passed through them at some point.  This newsletter isn’t going to contain just information that I have transcribed about my family it will be on many different families. So perhaps some of our brick walls will come down.

I cannot do look-ups or do research for you.

I have added a query page. Click on the Query Page button at the bottom of the next page.

You can also search my pages using the search engine on the bottom of this page.

Looking Back will be updated every month with new data, family stories and queries so please visit every month…

I will be in the near future asking people to share family stories, research tips, small family trees (no Gedcoms) that I will post in Looking Back


The rest of this page is information on emailing me and the other boring stuff that goes along with almost any webpage.

  1. I am not a professional researcher; I am a stay at home mom who loves genealogy.
  2. I make every attempt to give accurate information with sources but as with anything that is transcribed and passed along information posted in Looking Back may contain errors. . It is the researcher’s responsibility to check the sources given for accuracy.
  3. If you find an error please post to the newsletter’s query page (Located on the next page ) or email me what you believe to be the correct information and any sources that you may have. 
  4. Any tips or opinions unless noted are solely from my own experience with research. I welcome your comments, suggestions, & questions but please be kind, no flaming.
  5. If you have any tips that you would like to share, such as how to organize your research data, etc., please email me and I will include it in a future Looking Back issue.
