You have to order birth certificates from the Bureau of Vital Statistics in Richmond, Va. The Courthouse will have copies of wills, deeds and other court records including marriage bonds and certificates. You can contact Doug Cooper at the Bedford Museum for some of the records in Bedford County, and the rest of Bedford records such as wills and deeds and other court records will be in the Bedford county courthouse. If you know exactly what you need book and page, i'll try to get it for you. I work the same hours they are open, so it's not easy to go there and get documents.
