An upcoming project of the Historical Society is to locate and list all cemeteries in Campbell County--no matter how remote, no matter how small. Our goal is to publish a book listing names, dates, and military records found on the tombstones and a map showing the location of each cemetery in the County.

We will be needing people to tell us the exact locations of the many small, private cemeteries, people to go out and list them and people to put this information into computers.

If you can participate in this project in any way, call Eleanor Carson, 993-3348, or write to Campbell County Historical Society, Inc. P.O. Box 560, Rustburg, Va 24588.
