No Personal Subjects at Library of Virginia for Incomplete Names

Names are not always complete in documents, especially when the individuals are not the primary people referenced in a document. The Library of Virginia allows searches for all names referenced in land patents on their site, but the only names that get an entry in “Subject-Personal” are those who are listed with a first and a last name in the patent. So if you are browsing this index by “Subject-Personal,” remember that it only includes references to people who have a complete name in the record.lva-subjects
