The Library of Virginia announced that the Circuit Court Records Preservation (CCRP) program has awarded the Fredericksburg Circuit Court Clerk Jeff Small a grant in the amount of $49, 810.00 for local records preservation. The funds will be used to conserve Deed Book F, H.C., 1806-1816; Deed Book F, H.C., 1816-1820; Deed Book H, H.C., 1823-1826; Deed Book I, H.C., 1826-1831; Deed Book J, H.C., 1831-1835; Deed Book K, H.C., 1835-1838; Deed Book L, H.C., 1838-1840; Wills, Bonds & Inventories A-3, Dist. Sup. Ct. stored in his office. They will also be digitized so that they can be made available to the public through the clerk’s online records management system.
“We’re very excited,” said Mr. Small. “These records are the history of our city! We have an obligation to make sure that they are available for future generations.”
Since 1990, the CCRP has awarded over 1,100 grants totaling more than $25,000,000. This year, the program awarded $4.7 million to 101 localities to assist the clerks’ offices with their preservation efforts.
The CCRP is a collaborative program between the Library of Virginia and the Virginia Court Clerks Association (VCCA). Funded through a $3.50 portion of the clerk’s recordation fee, the CCRP provides resources to help preserve and make accessible permanent circuit court records stored in the 120 circuit courts and at the Library of Virginia.
