Have you tried the VA Historical Society, and the VA State Library? They actually do have plenty of family records that pertain to slaves. My family did not have any slaves, but since they have been in VA since the 1600's, it would not surprise me too much to have black cousins. Wouldn't bother me at all. I am already a mix of Scotch-Irish, English, French, and a little German. Husband is Spanish, Puerto Rican, German, English, Danish, French and Austrian. We consider ourselves American.
