Hi Jacqueli,


I've been trying to find a connection of my great-great-great grandfather William H. Lindsay
b. Abt. 1785 in Campbell County, VA, m. Elizabeth F. Litchford, Dec. 11, 1821 in Campbell Co., VA to Robert
Lindsay. I have a microfilm I ordered from 1818-1820 that listed William Lindsay son of Robert Lindsay, Sr. Do you have any of them in your files? If you don't is there anyway you could look up a source somewhere that could help me find a connection?

Sincerely,

Matthew Lindsay
