Research Library

 Stop by the Sargeant Museum during our public hours (Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-4:00 pm) and use the resources in our research library. Resources include books on Louisa history, past issues of the LCHS Magazine, and many different types of historical records (deed and will abstracts, vital record indexes, cemetery records, etc.).  Wifi is available for public use to access personal research accounts (ex. Ancestry.com). A copier is available for public use for a small fee. No registration or fee required to use the research library during public hours.

Archival Research & Special Collections

Additional resources are available in LCHS archive and special collections that may interest researchers. An appointment is neccessary to conduct research with our archives and special collections. 

Remote Research Services

If you are unable to come to our site, we can conduct the research for you for a small fee (suggested donation $20/hour plus copy and mailing costs). Our trained volunteers can conduct research in our library, archives, and special collections as well as at the Louisa County Courthouse. Please contact our Research Coordinator through the form below to get started.
