      also there are several Richmond/Scotland/etc. websites which have a lot of local resources and lists of persons will to do lookups.
       
      here is a link to one which has links to others:
       
       
      good luck

      Subject: [rich-scot-nc] Brick walls

      I would like to know how others have breached their brick walls.  I am
      searching for the parents of a great grandmother who was born in 1857. The
      1860 census records for the county where she was supposed to have married
      were destroyed. She married in 1873 so I have only the 1860 and 1870 census
      to search for her parents. A page by page search of the 1870 census for the
      same county has also turned up nothing. There is no record of the marriage
      (but there is reason to believe that marriage records for that year are
      non-existent).
      I have her birth and death dates from her tombstone. The marriage date came
      from her husband's obit.
      Even the state has no death record for her (she died in 1925). I got her
      maiden name from records of her children, but it includes a number of
      speling variations.
      I am in the process of searching page by page the succession records for
      the county where I think she lived, but zilch so far.
      I am also handicapped by the geographical distance. I live across the
      country from where she did, so cannot go to a local library for
      geneological research.
      I'd love any suggestions as to how others have managed.
      Thanks in advance.
