Lancaster County, VA Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records
Originally part of Northumberland and York Counties, Lancaster County was established in 1651. Over time, the General Assembly pared down its vast area, creating 16 modern-day Virginia counties and three counties now in West Virginia. The present Courthouse, which dates from 1860, houses county records which have been maintained virtually intact since 1652. Qualified individuals may obtain Virginia records for $12.00 at the Virginia Department of Health. Death, marriage, and divorce records become public after 50 years, birth records after 100. The Library of Virginia houses birth and death records (18531896) and marriage records (18531935).
