Printed under Authority of Act of the General 

Assembly. Approved March 

16, 1910. 



PREFACE TO PART I. 



FROM 1776 to 1861, inclusive, the original laws of Virginia were enrolled 
upon single sheets of parchment, and each session's acts were rolled into 

bundles and placed in tin tubes for preservation. ' In this inaccessible 
shape they remained until, at the session of 1906, the General Assembly di- 
rected that these rolls be properly arranged, cleaned, bound and labeled. 

In accordance with that act, they have been bound into convenient vol- 
umes, each session's acts separate, and are now on file in this office in accessible 
form for reference. 

The act directed that an index be prepared for the parchments, and in- 
stead of preparing an index for each volume, under the advice and direction 
of the Governor a general index covering the period from 1776 to 1862, inclusive, 
has been prepared and is appended hereto. 

The acts of the session of 1861-62 were enrolled upon paper, but were not 
bound. They are, therefore, bound and included in this index. 

From 1865 to the present time the acts of assembly have been enrolled on 
paper and bound into convenient volumes, each session's acts separate. 

The acts of the session of 1816 are bound in two volumes and labeled and 
indexed "1816, vol. I" and "1816, vol. II," respectively, The acts of the ses- 
sion of 1816-17 are labeled simply 1816 and are so indexed. 

In the many handlings and moves to which the parchment sheets have 
been subjected, some have probably been lost, but it is not thought that any 
appreciable number will be found missing. 

The general statutes are carefully referred to, but being so fully indexed 
in the Codes, an effort has been put forth to make this index especially local, 
and extra cross indexing has been done with this end in view. 



PREFACE TO PART II. 



THE act of assembly approved March 16, 1910, directed that the index 
already prepared and printed to the rolls from 1776 to 1862, inclusive, be 
printed as Part I, and that an index to the rolls from 1863 to 1910, 
inclusive, be prepared and printed as Part II, of a complete index to the rolls 
from 1776 to 1910, inclusive. 

It was also provided that copies of such acts as the originals of which had 
been lost, be made and the same to be signed by the Governor, and when so 
signed, should be accepted and certified as the original rolls. 

In the preface to the original print of Part I, it is stated, "a portion of the 
acts of 1861-62 and extra session of 1862 and all of the acts from that date to 
1865, have been lost," but all of the acts of 1861-62, the extra session of 1862 



and called session of 1862 are extant and are bound in the volume of 1861-62, 
With appropriate markers showing each session separately, and are embodied 
in Part I under the reference of 1861-62. Therefore, the only missing rolls are 
those of the adjourned session of 1863, the called session of 1863 and the regu- 
lar session of 1863-64. These have been copied, signed and indexed as pro- 
vided by the act above mentioned and are on file in this office. It is hoped 
that the originals of these rolls may yet be found. 

The acts of the so-called restored government of Virginia passed at 
Wheehng, Alexandria and Richmond, as follows: 

WheeUng, 1861; 
Wheeling, 1861-62; 
Wheeling, 1862 — extra session; 
Wheehng, 1862-63; 
Alexandria, 1863-64; 
Alexandria, 1864-6.5; 
Richmond, 1865 — extra session; 

have never been recognized by Virginia as acts of her General Assembly, but 
under the stress and exigencies of war, were so recognized by the government 
of the United States. These acts are, therefore, not re-enrolled and indexed 
in this general index, as the originals were never in the possession of the gov- 
ernment of Virginia, or a part of the laws of this State except by Federal 
adjudication; but for historical reference, the indexes to the printed acts of 
each of these ses.sions are printed as an appendix to this general index. 

Every act has been carefully indexed and cross indexed, but the same 
•general design followed in Part I has been followed in Part II, i. e., special refer- 
ence has been given to local and special acts, the general acts having been so 
fuUy covered in the Code revisions and indexes thereto.
