The King and Queen County Historical Society Bulletins, published since 1953, are a wealth of information on King and Queen County history. They are researched and written by individuals with a connection to the county. They record histories of families, places they lived, and local, state and national events affecting them. Schools, churches, post offices, businesses, agriculture, marine industries, transportation and cemetery data can also be found within Bulletin pages.
Two Indexes for the Bulletins have been published, the Index for Issues 1–50 (July 1956–January 1981) and the Index for Issues 51–100 (1981–2006). They are organized in alphabetical order with the issue number presented as the first number before the colon in each citation given. For issues 1-50 the number following the colon is the column number and for issues 51-100 the number after the colon is the page number.
All the Bulletins and Indexes may be read in the Museum Library. Copies of these may be purchased on the Shop page of this website or at the Museum with the exception of the Bulletins above 100 which can only be purchased at the Museum. When purchasing a Bulletin the issue number must be presented. To search the Bulletin Indexes for issues of interest and to identify the issue number, click on one of the Bulletin Indexes below.
