If you have genealogy questions please email us at director@culpepermuseum.com. Genealogy Research is not our expertise, but we have been able to assist many folks by at least letting them know some of our local resources. 

Some other resources are:

  • Culpeper Country Library: the library has a special history room with information about local history and genealogy. Visit their website at tlc.library.net/culpeper for location, opening hours and use the "catalog" to search for books.
  • Culpeper Genealogy Society is a non-profit educational society organized for the purposes of uniting people interested in Culpeper County, Virginia, history and family genealogy; encouraging preservation of records; promoting educational programs; and publishing literature related to local records and genealogies.
