I will see if I have other specific info on Frankey.

Indenturing was servitude. The purpose with children was to be sure they did not become a drag on society (welfare). As draconian as the system was VA was a little more advanced - at some point required education, learn a trade, and set out other conditions.

The site with the microfilm list only gives the reel and document description, year, etc for ordering. You would need to know what year and/or what kind of documents you want to review (wills, marriages, etc) There are no live links to the documents themselves. To contact the library go to this page: http://www.lva.virginia.gov/public/order.asp Or take the info to your library and see if they can arrange to receive the microfilm for you to review.

ILL means they only lend to another library.
