This Is Wonderful!

I've always been curious about

pre-Restoration Williamsburg.

I've read the Library Of Congress Collection of the Virginia Gazette

from 1897 to 1913 and was always frustrated that

there was not more of it.

You've done a great service!

Greatly Appreciated!

What a Great Resouce

for Researchers

of Williamsburg History! 

Bravo for your preserverance

in bringing this to life.

Good Work!

Thank you for preserving these treasures and making them available online. 


Only a Virginia Historian would know the True Value

of this Collection!

This Resource is a sincere desire to assist Researchers! 

What a commendable effort in putting this together

for posterity!

Future Generations

will thank you!
