A guide to genealogical research in the Fredericksburg area.


Welcome to the UMW Libraries Genealogy guide. This guide is designed to help you find sources for genealogical research in the Fredericksburg area.

The UMW libraries do not maintain a genealogy collection, but we do have some items that may be of interest to genealogists, including Fredericksburg cemetery records and historical newspapers. For further genealogical research, we recommend the Central Rappahannock Regional Library, the Central Rapphannock Heritage Center, and the Library of Virginia.

To get started, click the tabs at the top of the page.
