Newsletter – Found in the Archives

The Fairfax Circuit Court Historic Records Center’s (HRC) monthly newsletter, Found in the Archives, highlights interesting and unique documents held in our collection. Each month, we examine a set of documents and explain what they are and why the court has custody of them – there are many stories to be told! From time to time, we also provide updates on what’s happening in the HRC and information about HRC participation in local history events.
